> For some there is seems to be no distinction between Identifier and Identity, but when you get to registration and services, Identity starts going into policy decisions.

But an Identifier identifies an entity, so when the entity is registered it is described by an Identifier value. When an identity is described in a policy statement, it is described by an Identifier value.

It is hard to disagree with my statement above because it is such a fundamental and basic definition.
