If it is used in the way defined for XRI then fine. I was simply arguing 
in the case where we want to use different rules for OpenID; in that 
case the data type of the element is the same but the semantics are not.

As it stands, it's not really clear how multiple URI elements (which, if 
I'm not mistaken, are allowed in XRI) would work with OpenID, for the 
same reasons that this wasn't included in OpenID 1.1 with the 
openid.server LINK element.
