I don't think IE's behavior has any bearing on the subject -- other  
than as an interesting analogy, which is the only reason why I  
mentioned it in my e-mail.

The particular interop problem that occurred did not involve a  
browser as a significant part. It occurred when the user (me) entered  
something like
into a Relying Party, who then went on to attempt to get the OpenID  
HTML document (could have been the Yadis URL, or the LID meta=lid  
query) from URL

So I think this remains a valid issue, and I'm sure we'll see lots of  
issues like that going forward as adoption of URL-based identity  
accelerates ...
