"one's"? are we excluding machine agents?

I'd love to go in to detail about referring to the identity of a thing, 
but will simply propose this is swapped to "providing a reference to an 
agent", or words to that effect.

WebID-compatible, or WebID-based?

well... we MUST be able to have multiple WebIDs, and have a preferred or 
canonical one, the notion of "changing" is a bit strange within the 
timelessness of RDF.

Can we keep this to MUSTs and not SHOULDs.

Which system? and efficiency of? (Network, Implementation, Inference and 
Querying?)

the "especially for.." is redundant.

can we define "the Web Profile" here, what is it, and how does it define 
a default for itself?

please define legacy WebIDs here and swap it to a MUST or remove completely.
