For 3) See for Videntity's PHP-OpenID library.
(Based heavily off the python libraries.)

For 2) One Million Movable Type users?  Maybe.  Movable Type 3.2
apparently has OpenID support as far as comment authentication
(consumers) goes.  I'm unsure if it's TypeKey specifically, or something
built into the software.
See or for more details.
Also LiveJournal (and DeadJournal too) as stated above.

1) LiveJournal, as mentioned previously.  (DeadJournal also, for the
same reason.) and the Wiki has a lot of simple integrations.
And the original AJAX+Classic demo loom somewhere, let's see if I can
find it...
There it is, the original proof of concept:

The Videntity Wiki has OpenID logins allowed.  And the patch is
available for any media wiki administrators.
