Neither way's hard.  I'm fine with whatever.

That's how it used to be.  Rationale originally was:

"is_identity" is a question:  "Is this person this identity?":
"assert_identity" is a statement:  "I assert this identity."

I'd like to keep the question and answer fields separate, or at least turn
them both into just "identity" so nobody can be confused about the
question vs. answer interpretation in the word "is"?
