I agree whole heartedly with your overall thoughts on this issue.

As you state, we need to be pragmatic. Since we are rushing to put
together a position paper under tight deadline, we should not turn this
into a WebID use case. We need to focus on writing the paper and not get
distracted by implementing tech. I would prefer to be coding as writing is
not my most favorite activity. But time is of the essence and the priority
must shift to getting this paper done and submitted.
