Similar to sub in the JWT draft [1], the fluff is intended to allow
for cases where the subject alone can't or shouldn't directly identify
someone. I'm open to changes that would help clarify usage (and I
think that warrants a mention in Interoperability Considerations) but
any such text needs to be reflective of reality too.
