for the web, using other protocols for more heavy lifting.

So, let's look at openid.mode = 'associate'. Associate is only used by 
most of us as a "smart mode". So, upon response, why not have a 
key-value that talks about services, and then another value that would 
have info on that service.

So, what if I had implemented my http mail system over OpenID, my ID 
Server would return all the regular associate stuffs.. with:


Interesting, huh?

Should we start to work on this, guys?
