I think I suggested this before:

and that again led back to RDF in the name of decoupling from HTML.

I really would prefer a solution like what you or I have described  
which could be included inline in an HTML document--I really do not  
see why we need a separate document and another bandwidth hit just to  
find an identity server.  It really over-complicates things in my mind.

Perhaps there should be a separate variant of the protocol for non- 
HTML documents?  The <link ...> and such would make for such an  
elegant solution in HTML documents.
