not sure if i sidetrack on this topic a bit... myself i like to approach all statements on a web as claims, and most of them try to verify somehow before starting to consider them as... let's say 'legitimate'

for example, i can state in my profile that i know Melvin, but unless he states in his that he knows me i wouldn't consider it a mutual friendship. at some point i would like to see some kind of browser extensions which can help with verifying such common claims. similar i can state in my contributions portfolio that i have written major part of linux kernel... but unless 'cannonical' repository of it states same, my claim should get ignored by most people...
