Interesting.  Does that work well with services like MyOpenID that 
let's me build several profiles and choose which one to expose to 
each consumer?

I'm also the "pseudonymity should be the default" guy, so I would 
hope there's good granularity for the user to specify how much data 
each consumer sees.

Our feeling is that there are a lot of providers out there already, 
and Digg would just be a drop in the bucket.  There's a lot more 
benefit to Digg users and to Digg to being an OpenID consumer.

I wouldn't object to that approach.  Digg already allows each user to 
build rel="me" links on their profile page, which leads to cool 
developments like this:

OpenID delegation might work similarly.  I doubt many users would use 
it, but some would.

Ah, reputation.  I hope you're talking to Phil Windley!

We're committed to being an OpenID consumer.
