I already finished the Japanese translation of the spec few
days ago and announced at this yadis list. :-)
Now I found the movement is so quick that the translation become stale
soon. So, day by day, I have to catch up and maintain the doc. 

I'd like to share the work if possible. How do you feel?

Agree. I'm sure that there're many alpha geeks in Japan who're 
interested in this protocol. ;)

If we are going to setup that OpenID mailing list in Japanese lang, 
I think it is very nice that the ML is maintained by :-)
If decided not to setup that OpenID Japanese mailing list, 
I have some plans to propose.
