What about a credential 'Reader'?

The activity of what we've called 'inspector' or 'consumer' is, 
perhaps most fundamentally, to read the credential. They do not change 
it in any way.

It's like a book in that sense.

You have people who publish the book, who hold the book in libraries, 
who own the book. You have people that the book is about -- if it's a 
biography (the 'subject').

Then an activity occurs that is someone reading the book. Many 
different people can be Readers.  ?
