Perhaps one area that could be described is best practices for user

Roughly speaking

1 Star

Have an identifier denoting a Person, such as an IRC nick -- you're on the

2. Star

Have an identifier that is unique across domains, eg user@host or

3. Star

Include a URI scheme such as mailto: xmpp: or http: so that discovery can
be performed on that identifier.  eg you may wish to lookup a persons name,
avatar. blog or public key.  Ability to reverse search is a plus too, so
that people can look up friends via their name for example.

4 Star

Have a standard API so that more information can be discovered.  e,g, HTTP
GET for HTTP, smtp or webfinger for email, xmpp discovery for xmpp.

5 star

Return data using web standards such as JSON LD or RDa in HTML.  Or
something that is interoperable with these standards.  Essentially this
boils down to having 0 or more entities with key value pairs associated
with them, such that both the keys are machine understandable and the
values are allowed to be links.
