Very nice!

Observations re. diagram:

1. step #2 is missing arrow (inbound) from "resource server" to Bob's 
browser is missing re. authentication challenge
2. step #3 is missing arrow (outbound) indicating what happens after 
"OK" button is clicked.

Re. OpenID, accentuating OpenID+WebID will help i.e., implying that 
OpenID implementers benefit immediately from WebID. It's less 
politically thorny than implying OpenID is inadequate (even though we 
know it is etc..).
