Outline for W3C Identity Workshop
Nick and I plan to submit an paper to http://www.w3.org/2011/identity-ws/Overview.html. This ticket is for the outline.
The potential starting point could be the idea that identity in the browser is inevitably a global property of the entire state of this browser, and that users should be provided with the ability to clear, store, and change identities. We can go from there into what identity really is (linkability), and then define linkability and provide more examples of how to recognize it and manage it, regardless of what authentication is actually explicitly happening.
