Am I the only one who'd think that a decentralized identity system  
should not depend on some central authority's validation of  
somebody's identity? (whether expressed as a signature on logos or  
whatever ...)

Note that I didn't say "cannot use", but "should not depend on",  
protocol-wise or de-facto.
