Stefan, I understand and appreciate the argument of too many topics, but 
Identity is really important to Mozilla and our implementation 
schedule.  We have already started coding up Identity support for 
Firefox, and we're in danger of soon being blocked because certain 
details haven't yet been nailed down.  In particular, we really need to 
spend time on IdP registration and the precise details of the messaging 
model.  Please consider adding Identity back to the agenda.

Thanks,
-Maire
