Dominik, I think it would be better to put the AuthZ proposal forward for the Berlin conference.

If you remember what Harry Halpin said at the teleconf previous to todays  [1], the browser people are still very skeptical of RDF. Mozilla got into it in 2000 - way too early - before it was ready, when too few people had knowledge on how to use it correctly. So talking to them about ontologies will be counterproductive. WebID does use the semweb, but we can talk about it in a way that it need not take center stage. 

I'll look at your proposal in more detail this week. It would be worth comparing it to what Benjamin Heitman has been developing, and then work on some implementations.
