true. but not relevant. Authentication is a user interface issue. If some
identity string scheme wants to include independently verifiable checksums
or something, that's great, and we should certainly allow that. Ephemeral
identities, also. An ephemeral identity is, for example, the identity
assigned to one's shopping cart, that might have to receive enough purchase
points from various sources before blessing its contents as bought.

In this document, the key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED",
"MAY",and "OPTIONAL" are to be interpreted using situational ethics.
