ACID test question:

Can I make a document comprised of Identity claims, represented using 
RDF statements, that uses relations to assert possession of a keypair, 
where none of the relations use terms from the FOAF vocabulary?

Answer: Yes!

The <http://www.w3.org/ns/auth/cert#cert> relation isn't FOAF vocabulary 
based.
