Could you use this instead:

<wot:identify rdf:resource="#wkearney99"/>

Isn't it more or less true that the mit and pgp servers are the ones 
to use by default? Should one need to actually share up their 
own .asc key file they could post it on their web site. Or, as you 
suggested, use a URL pointing out where to search.

While we're here, do we prefer the use of:
<wot:hex_id rdf:value="0x79F14C94" />

The former being a bit more digestible to simple XML folk.
