1. The storage of the subject identifier in the repository is optional,
as per earlier discussion with Manu today, but is seen to be mandatory

the holder (in the case where the holder is the subject and the
identifier is a public key) but this option is not represented in the

In terms of the arrows, I prefer Dave Crocker's version
