 From a logistical standpoint, if OpenID is going to continue on as a  
distinct entity, then should it get its own mailing list?

I think that a fair amount of the confusion stems from the fact that  
YADIS was announced on the OpenID mailing list, and given that OpenID  
itself was once named yadis, it seemed like YADIS was the next  
generation of OpenID, and that OpenID as we know it was going away.
