I'd imagine LiveJournal would never be a compliant IdP then :-\  We can't raise the bar too high for either an IdP or RP.  I don't mind as much for IdPs, but still want it to be fairly simple.

How about this scheme:

Require IDPs to support serving both http and https ID URLs, with both
required to map to the same identity.  But relying parties can choose
which to support, so RPs that do sensitive things will only support
https URLs, while PhpBBs and similar applications can use the less
secure http URL.
