In the current node-solid-server implementation, we have some functionality 
to verify certain interactions with an email verification, such as the 
deletion of the whole Pod. 

I think we should make this more generic, possibly through the Web Access 
Control spec, so that users can specify that certain interactions need that 
kind of verification. 

That way `DELETE /` (i.e. delete the whole POD) could be governed by e.g. 
an explicit rule in the ACL file to ensure verification. 

The code for email verification will need to be in the server anyway, so I 
think it makes sense for users to be able to reuse this functionality where 
they please. One can also envision other verification mechanisms than email.
