Are you considering, since the spec allows additional Json objects in the

Do you mean in the user certificate? We're thinking about attributes /
claims, but we don't have an immediately compelling use case for them just

The pubkeys in Jwk format can then be described also in the cert ontology
from the foaf+sdk groups. As I showed last year, even a URL-serialized x509
version of the self-signed pubkey could exist within that graph, able to be
asserted as being equivalent to other entities...

Folks doing linked data persona can then nicely add value, without getting
in the of core interoperability.

I'm not opposed to looking at JSON-LD, for example, but remember, these
certificates are not meant to be publicized (though it's not a big deal if
they are.) Is there value to complicating the data format given that?
