Henry is focusing on browser UI/UX for the principle. The UI/UX depicted 
by Aza is about the principle of "identity" and how its relayed to the 
browser user. The UI/UX should provide a starting point from which (if 
they choose) a user could drill down further i.e., enter an identity 
graph from which further information could be obtained, information 
that's already available to the browser.

Note: Henry is seeking to expose the literals "GuyFawkes" solely, he 
wants to unveil the "identity" associated with those literals. The same 
thing applies to other data nuggets such as cookies. As stated already, 
this is simply about UI/UX that facilitates an optional drill-down into 
an identity oriented graph.
