Well I'd say if anyone can comment without identity, then you don't know if Dave commented, or if someone else did. (This is currently what commenting on blogs is, since people can usually type any email they want in the box).

Then we can tied foaf+ssl identification in with ping, to let people know that someone commented on them.

To tag someone is to add a relation such as <img.jpg> foaf:depics bblfish:me .

Then you can ping bblfish:me .

Something like that? 

I have not thought it through carefully, as we just finished the teleconf.
