I wasn't insinuating that an Alternative Name == Persona. In previous 
mails in this thread I've outlined my understanding of Personae and 
demonstrated that understanding with how its implemented in our YouID 
product, for instance.

A Persona [1] is basically derived from claims in an Identity Card and 
patterns of behavior associated with it. Thus, I have Personae across 
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.. That's derived from a combination of 
my Identities across each of theses services and the nature of the 
content associated with said identity :-)
