Federated? unified? ugh I need a term!

So I keep trying to describe the FOSSN to different people and I really do believe we need a new term to describe what I would like to create. I do not want the completely open model of OpenID as I would like to give people the ability to control their various personas. For example, I do not want to merge my Tribe network (all my burningman friends) with my LinkedIn network (a bunch of my business associates.) I'm not being secretive (obviously I'm posting it here.) I just don't like my social spheres being taken out of context. To me it is a bit like wearing a party dress to work. We all know I wear them - just not to work (usually ;-))
