Good Idea.

I have also thought of and addressed some additional
problems in my examples:

1) In the 'Single Login' scenario when a user Subscribes to
a service how does the 'Single Login' software know what
Login URL to associate the with the new AccountName and
Password? The Login URL is usually different from the
Subscribe URL! My solution was in realizing that an
interface (like an Object Oriented interface) is an
encapsulation of Actions. The encapsulation of the Subscribe
and Login actions in a single SIML definition associates the
subscription with the login. 

2) A canonical structure for Personal Information Bases is
needed if this thing is going to fly. I took a first crack
at specifying some of the structure:
