Along with many others, Tim Bray has been talking about identity
providers (IDP) for some time now [1], so perhaps an example with URLs
for Facebook / Google+ / Microsoft / Twitter IDs would be appropriate
examples here (hello, FOAF territory)?

The Jane Doe example in could have a list
of her social service identities added via We
could reuse that section of examples on the "sameAs" page. A small
challenge will be to avoid linking to an actual account for one of the
real services, as "examplecom" and "janedoe" are valid accounts on at
least one site, and enterprising (ahem) people might set up an account
to grab what is currently an invalid account in the future...
