Persona isn't being supported by Mozilla (from a funding and human 
resources point of view) anymore.

WebID-TLS is live an well. You might not fully understand it, which is 
fine, you don't have to keep on knocking it at every opportunity. This 
solution already works with what's installed across desktop, notebook, 
tablet, and phone operating systems. It doesn't force any technology, 
provider, or superficial promises based restrictions on you.
