Agreed, Johannes. I've discussed the potential for a converged lightweight
discovery format that would be used by OpenID, LID, and XRI i-names with a
half-dozen people since the IIW meeting and the reception has been VERY
positive. As in, "this could have a huge affect on adoption" by websites
which potentially could install a single plug-in to support an "SSO login
box" that could accept either a URL or XRI, get the YADIS XRID document, and
complete authentication via the supported protocols.

So comments/feedback are openly solicited. Again, the XRI TC is producing
the next Working Draft that will be incorporating any feedback/revisions to
XRID structure *this week*, so the sooner we know about any issue/change,
the better.

Is nobody saying anything because it's so obviously good that it  
doesn't need to be commented on, or so obviously bad that it doesn't  
need to be commented on, or ...? ;-)

 From my perspective, it looks fine so far, and if we can "reuse" a  
standard instead of inventing a new one, I would consider this to be  
A Good Thing.
