I'm simply suggesting that email boxes are "owned" and therefore it is
easier to assert statements when using them as a unique identifier for a
persons interface to the Web. Look at Dan's FOAF stuff -

If I said I "owned" an http:// URI, how easy would that be to prove
(ignoring TLDs - not everybody owns a TLD)?
