Reading your paper I was interested in one aspect of the proposal that
deals with agents / apps that need to perform tasks on behalf of the
user, and where you propose the use of "delegated WebIDs". You mention
OAuth, in this part too, but I'm afraid I miss the details about the
pros / cons of both solutions.

Of course, OAuth doesn't rely on core Semantic Web tech, but on the
other hand, it is quite widespread now AFAICT so lots of services
support it (including some which are Linked Data aware, such as OSLC
compliant ones).

Is there a more detailed discussion on this topic so that I could lear
more on this (IIRC, you mention discussions on these lists about that
very point) ?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
