The BadVoltage folks at least touched one area which I consider crucial, "buy-in".

I think they are right regarding Google, PayPal etc.  These guys already have
established solutions that are convenient and scales well.  In addition they can
(at least Google and Apple) roll-out security solutions that the traditional players
can only dream about.

IMO, the only way to get *any* buy-in from the traditional players is providing a
useful login solution to banks.  That may make them interested and then they can
take on a next step which obviously is much more difficult.
