Which IDM domain model should I use, picketlink idm or DeltaSpike? I might be wrong, but probably those entities belongs to the IDM?

Why not make use of same entity model from PicketLink IDM? https://github.com/picketlink/picketlink-idm/blob/master/picketlink-idm-api/src/main/java/org/picketlink/idm/api/User.java. Or create some level of abstraction like that.

How do I extend the User class to include a token and the email attribute?
