Multiple WebIDs (or any other cryptographically verifiable identifier) 
are a must.

The issue of UI is inherently subjective. It can't be used to 
objectively  validate or invalidate Web-scale verifiable identifier 
systems such as  WebID or any other mechanism aimed at achieving the 
same goals.

Anyway, Henry, I,  and a few others from the WebID IG (hopefully) are 
going to knock up some demonstrations to show how this perceived UI/UX 
inconvenience can be addressed.
