hi alexandre,

1. webID is not an annex to ldp, it's neither on top of ldp or else
related, why should it be. should we redefine dope, sioc, foaf just to
please ldp? 
(let that sound to your ears : a doap:Project is a #URI that denotes a
software project)
2. webID has nothing to do with deployment and data-io, hence it has
nothing to do with ldp.
3. not every triple on this planet will be hosted on an ldp system
sometimes soon
4. on the other i could always host a webID on an ldp system, that's it
5. webID does NOT rely on ldp. when i choose to host my webID on an ldp
system there WILL be a turtle representation (if the ldp spec says so)
and i CAN have a #URI, that's it.

to the topic of speed : i'd rather ask first (maybe also a second time)
and shoot later. changing specs is not really a good idea to do it too

to the topic of discussion : we are simple "discussing" the very
definition of webID - that is NOT a waste of time.
