Use http:// for the identity URLs and then declare first priority OpenID  
server a https://-URL and for those who cannot cope with it another  
http://-URL as the second priority OpenID server, the identity URL itself  
is not the important part to be secure but the server is. Priorities can  
be expressed in the Yadis/XRDS document.
