This is false and perhaps even inflammatory at this point. We've had 
this discussion many times; each time you were disinterested in 
understanding the implementation we did. However, your disinterest had 
nothing to do with the technical merits of the implementation or its 
adherence to how WebID over TLS was described at the time.

Our implementation was of a TLS client that used a TLS client-side 
certificate with an alternate name that was a URL that the 
authentication server accessed to obtain the same public key in the 
client-side certificate given during the TLS handshake.
