Thanks Oliver :-)

Also if you publish your foaf inside a firewall, then only people  
inside that firewall can access it. So that is very similar to  
protection intranet web pages have, such as your company name finder  
web site for example. That may be enough for many (most>) use cases.

So if you gave everyone inside your firewall a foaf name, and allowed  
them to publish owl:sameAs to their external foaf, you could already  
do some very interesting things that are not possible to do with ldap.
