Ok, we definitely want to change the name. However, first we need to be sure that we like the model, i.e. that we want to have this kind of third parties auditing our operators that want to provide verified identities, and that we want the ID4me association to look for these parties and decide who they are. The concept came from the ID4me association's board, but we could get back to them and say "we don't like it" - the problem then becomes how do we take care of the case in which someone just establishes their own agent and/or authority and starts to issue identity tokens stating that the data were verified even if they weren't.

For me, whatever the technical group wants is fine. I used the example of certificates because I thought that otherwise no one would understand what we meant, but I can just revise the language in the draft to make it an abstract "chain of trust" without reference to any technology.
