RE: Extending it is devland business, not spec stuff.

That’s where I’m headed/why I asked the question.  Also to validate the spec in real life.

After Addresses and Countries, Cows and Calves are next.

My thoughts are that we should respect the original intention of JSON-LD and provide baseline mapping entry points. The spec should define requirements for identifying an entity, and I think it does a good job of that. Extending it is devland business, not spec stuff.

Take, for example, these 2 classes of (non-fungible) entities where each entity in the class becomes a Subject and DID (Digital Identifier) is created for each Subject:

  *   Countries
  *   [Postal] Addresses

What are examples of a taxonomy of DID Methods that make sense for representing/organizing Countries and Addresses?

did:country:…

did:address:…

What are your thoughts?
