On a tangent, OpenID seems to be dying on the vine, like similar systems 
before it. Is it worth creating yet another federated, open, single 
sign-on system and doing it right, or are there business reasons why the 
market just doesn't want this? Would solving the technical problems lead 
to broader adoption or not?

(I'm currently deep in a project that depends on this sort of stuff, so 
this is of more than theoretical interest.)
