Sam Ruby is talking about how to use FOAF to have one web site vouch for another web site in response to a request from Dave on keeping changes.xml pure (a SPAM issue, I believe). Sam describes a great use for FOAF as a system for inferring trust relationships. Of course, FOAF could also be extended to record those trust relationships explicitly for other purposes.
