Verisign is one the strong supporters of URL-based identity and the  
convergence around a common architecture we've accomplished with Yadis.

For example, Mike Graves (Verisign CTO) and I talked about it on a  
panel at PC Forum. Even Stratton Sclavos, Verisign's CEO, mentioned  
something to that effect in his keynote.

There's a bunch of stuff happening in the background, not sure this  
particular project was supposed to be visible this way, but it's  
interesting, you are right ;-)
