The current spec doesn't differentiate very well between the
identifying agent which is "typically also a User Agent" which in most
peoples' minds roughly corresponds to a browser, and the user operating
the identifying agent itself.

It says for instance "Identification Certificate: An X.509 [X509V3]
Certificate that must contain a Subject Alternative Name extension with
a URI entry. The URI identifies the Identification Agent"; and "WebID
URI: A URI specified via the Subject Alternative Name extension of the
Identification Certificate that identifies an Identification Agent."
