Olivier,

Our approach of delegated WebID access (which we discussed at the WebID meeting
on FSW2011 in Berlin) tries to push the WebID idea forward by reusing existing
WebID resources. Using OAuth would at least introduce a new protocol and we
tried to keep this as simple as possible.

I agree that OAuth is widely in use and a synergy of Oauth and WebID is an
interesting idea.

Best regards
