Fediverse platforms should let users know which platform was from which account because domain names are often confusing. For example: If an account is registered on PeerTube, Mastodon would assign a tag to the account called "PeerTube account". Same way with other platforms, and vice versa. I think this needs to be in ActivityPub's code. Favorite and boost if you think this would be a great idea! 👍

While I agree to the first part, “ActivityPub's code” :
ActivityPub has no code.
ActivityPub has specifications.
And a conformance section:
w3.org/TR/activitypub/#conform
e.g. “This designation applies to any implementation of the entirety of the server portion of the client to server protocol.”

So, the problem is that the softwares are maybe not conformant, otherwise it would not be needed.
What would be the main benefit for you?

I forgot:
It just came to my mind that if we are talking about the specifications,
what you mean is there.

It is the `generator` property. See
w3.org/TR/activitystreams-voca

If it is filled out, the software I write will show it when you hover the link.

But hey, mastodon does not use it, so there is nothing we can do :(
