That would allow for WebID to work even if the whole internet were down and the only two machines that were running were yours and the one you are connecting to. I think this is possible with Opera, and Melvin mentioned that Peter Williams had tried it. I will try adding that Option to Clerezza for Opera users. That will make having multiples SANs really useful. A mobile, sometimes unavailable SAN, but always available one when connecting, and a long term reliable SAN always available.

How does Opera Unite (Opera acting as a proxy to site they host for you)
differ from just having your own Personal Data Space somewhere on the
Web or even Internet (now that WebIDs don't even need to be HTTP URIs
courtesy of Webfinger)?
HTTP servers can really run anywhere (nothing unique to Opera bar a
little convenience relative to other browsers), sadly Web 2.0 has
created a bizarre illusion that you can't do peer to peer on the Web
since most Web 2.0 companies (courtesy of Software as a Service) cannot
imagine a Web without their intermediary services etc..
Seth: You can have your own data space in a variety of setups. The WebID
protocol in no way negates these possibilities. If you want to run your
WebID compliant IdP on your desktop and be ready to invest the time in
getting a publicly resolvable CNAME, you can do so via the likes of
