Can't a web site use the WebID to allow a client to "log in" whether the
"Profile document" is online or not?  Sure the site cannot verify the
document, but that verification need not be required for each log in.   Have
we required the verification on each login?  Why would we do that?   Why
would we purposefully make our WebID less reliable?  What am i missing here?
