Anyone know about/tracking this? Seems likely scary from a
privacy perspective. (I mean the intarea thing, not the
repute aspect.)

Since there is some discussion, here, about annotating the source or 
from which an identifier's reputation was developed, it is plausible 
that it
would be worth considering annotating the context(s) in which it 
can/should be

The slippery slope, here, is probably the danger of moving from 
discussing or
specifying /attributes/ about a reputation to specifying /mechanisms/ of 
beyond the query mechanism.  Unless I've misread our charter, dealing 
with usage
scenarios and mechanisms is outside our charter.


ps.  I've no idea whether I just spoke as a chair.  that probably means 
I didn't..
