Firstly, I hereby claim to have had this allegedly excellent idea first :-)


Secondly, on PaulWay's point of none of them having a cool name -
that's not of primary importance, because the standard allows for the
following 'openid.delegate' link relationship in the content at my
static home page (http://www.vrvl.net/~ambrose):

<link href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" rel="openid.server" />
<link href="http://znalo.myopenid.com/" rel="openid.delegate" />
<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location" content="http://znalo.myopenid.com/xrds" />

making my openID url 'http://www.vrvl.net/~ambrose' instead of

That said, from a point of view of trust i'd be more inclined to use
infrastructure provided by LA than whoever 'www.openID.com' is , and
perhaps other likeminded organisations likely to become 'consumers'
would be too.

and Thirdly I agree with what jdub said : 'consumers' are still
relatively hard to come by. (but more blog-type things are coming on
