Start with the simplest version of linked data, and donít make me learn anything about federated social webs. Just let me read a foaf card on the web, test it for a key Ė just like I already do with an ldap query. Do that as simply as possible, ideally in a manner that a billion PCs can do today, with no change. Donít make me learn turtle, donít make me learn n3, donít make me learn inferences due to RDFa. Just let me test a key exists in a remote file, using a trivial webservice.

what you want is to develop issue-6 "using ASN.1 formats for WebID description"


Why don't you write out a simple spec on the wiki for that, put up the pros and cons you can think of
That is the simplest I can think of: A WebID that points into to a PEM file. We can see what people think.

Shall I open an action item for you?
