A grand unification - perhaps?

Great idea, maybe hard to do in practice.

The good news is that we've had conversations about YADIS already  
with various people in the Liberty and WS-* camps who share the view  
that all of this stuff needs to become interoperable, never mind the  
historical roots, because the users don't care about historical roots.

The bad news is that we don't have any proposals on the table how  
that could work, architecturally. (And then we'd have to take the  
politics into account, too...)

Ideas, anybody?
