Do the quotes around the first sentence indicate that it's all that's
proposed goes in the WSA spec?  Or is it the whole paragraph?

I think that even a few words about *why* it's good to only identify
with URIs, or at least suitable references to the relevant principles in
AWWW, would help.  e.g.

Other than that, it looks fine!!

It looks like this issue is nearly resolved then, and that's great.  But
again[1], I feel I have to point out that what's being resolved, while
important, is largely orthogonal to the issue that was accepted.  So
