"The discussed model is different from Brion's original proposal insofar 
as local user accounts will stop working after the migration date."

That may be a single signon with respect to different consumers but this 
is not a distributed system anymore!
Enforcing a single namespace for user names (proper) makes things easier 
for implementors but completely defeats the goals of OpenID (as far as I 
understand them!)

Too bad...
