Multiple SAN URIs is a feature we support in ODS. Ditto the projects 
Toby is working on. Multiple SAN URIs may not be expressly in the spec, 
but that doesn't make them unacceptable re. WebID implementation, at 
least as far as I know.

Henry/Manu: WebID+OpenID hybrid protocol does need coverage as this 
shows a non disruptive path for extending what already exists via WebID .
