How did you arrive at the current poll options?

What about: Web Identity Credentials, for instance?

The draft currently states:

[[
An identity is a Linked Data description of a particular entity such as 
a person or organization. A credential is a qualification, achievement, 
quality, or information about an identity's background such as a name, 
government ID, home address, or university degree. This specification 
describes mechanisms for reading credentials from and writing 
credentials to a Linked Data identity while ensuring that the 
information is only accessible to authorized applications.
]]

which would simply become:

An identity credential is a Linked Data description of a particular 
entity such as a person or organization, denoted by a WebID. A 
credential is a qualification, achievement, quality, or information 
about an identity's background such as a name, government ID, home 
address, or university degree. This specification describes mechanisms 
for reading credentials from and writing credentials to a Linked Data 
document while ensuring that the information is only accessible to 
authorized applications.
