FIDO is meant to be an alternative to this but I believe it will (in practice) only strengthen the power of the Big Three.
WebID-TLS could have been a credible distributed ID-system but the browser-vendors have (unilaterally) decided that cross-origin identities are bad although Google's authentication scheme does not only violate the cross-origin dogma but also adds content aggregation as icing on the cake.
