I think there is a general misconceoption about how successful standards are created and also the
importance of standards.  Windows is not a standard but still have some 90% of the desktop market.

I thought the situation is that the WebID folks still toil with the idea that the browser vendor
need to fix the TLS UI while Web Payments have given up on WebID-TLS and replaced it with
identitiy-credentials?

And then there is yours truly who believe that the WebID-TLS thing should be redesigned so that it
follows proprietary X.509 schemes have already have FOUR MAGNITUDES more users than WebID-TLS, but
of course using an open (eventually standardized) solution.
