Yes, and I am sure you know 2-factor authentication is ultimately as 
myopic as Web 2.0 :-)

It should be N-factor authentication where entity relationship semantics 
drive the entire process.

When I started using Google's 2-factor authentication I set a rough 
timer on how long it would take for me to receive some spam via phone 
call or sms. It took under 24 hours for that to happen.

These Web 2.0 services are checkmated by their myopia. They just don't 
understand (or care about) the nebulous nature of identity and the fact 
that the challenge can only be effectively addressed by semantics baked 
into machine-readable structured data, as efforts such as the WebID+TLS 
demonstrate.

Via 2-factor authentication Web 2.0 players continue to force users to 
release private data (e.g., phone numbers) to 3rd parties.

Privacy (as you know) is all about "You" being the calibrator of your 
vulnerabilities on or offline. It is "You" that decides that you will 
lock you door at night, not some dumb and extremely myopic robot in the 
cloud etc..

Anyway, 2-factor is better than 1-factor :-)
