Version 2.0, with key typo fixes and some fleshing out of bullet list items:


1. Separate identifiers from identity -- Yes

2. Identifiers are a string of characters used to create *globally unique**
**keys* around which identity is constructed

3. Your identity is a collection of attributes that coalesce around
unique keys

4. Your identity is protocol, medium and transport agnostic -- Yes

5. Separate data and protocol meta data from identity data -- Yes

Fundamentally, the following need to be loosely-coupled at all times:

1. Identity -- using various identifier schemes

2. Identification -- various document types pegged to identity (i.e.,
credentials)

3. Authentication -- various protocols for authenticating credentials

4. Authorization -- various protocols informed by authenticated credentials

5. Storage -- various protocols, post authorization
