I've moved past the issue of conflation etc.. I am already able to 
achieve what I seek [1][2] etc.. What we've implemented in our own 
namespace is there for adoption if anyone so chooses. As stated in an 
earlier Tweet/G+ post [3], extending schemas without consensus inertia 
is yet another Linked Data virtue :-)

My focus remains getting WebID to go viral via Web 2.0 realm player 
participation and adoption.


1. http://id.myopenlink.net/certgen -- x.509 certificate generator that 
enables Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, AtomPub blogs (e.g., Wordpress) act 
as IdP spaces for WebID
2. http://goo.gl/AcYWQ -- howto guide re. the above
3. http://goo.gl/vxjc8 -- readable page that also shows why I made my 
"conflation" claim re. PGP public key and x.509 Cert. modeling in WOT .
