I don't have issues with either, my fundamental concern is that they 
shouldn't be conflated in any way i.e.., #1 can be released before #2, 
if need be.

I just want the docs out there.

Our biggest challenge right now is the decoupling of WebID (the HTTP URI 
that denotes an Agent) from the WebID+TLS authentication protocol, which 
is ultimately one of many protocols that will be used to verify WebIDs.
