We didn't bring this discussion to closure. It just peter'd out. So
I will close it: don't do it.
The idea was to allow the ID server to participate in the
cannibalization process. So if you entered livejournal.com the ID
server might return alice.livejournal.com. This has a lot of nice
features (usability, privacy, functional). But it also has a serious
privacy flaw, as Martin pointed out. For example if alice visits mr.
evil anonymously he can, without her permission, attempt to
authenticator at livejournal.com and his reward is suddenly he knows
that this anonymous visitor is alice. Bleck.
I forecast sunny weather!
