Maybe SocialAccount and Account in general is not the right direction 
to  go. Account data itself is usually private data and in a private 
place  (only visible for logged in people or admin).
No one (correct me if I'm wrong) would want to markup username and 
password and what would be the benefit?
In my View behind an Account is always a Person, either with real or 
fake data, but in concept it is about a Person.

The Idea behind the SocialAccount proposal was to markup where a 
information about one Person can be found.
