Hi Lukas

The approach presumes you want the services to be publicly available.  
(yes, one could implement a ACL, but that is not in the proposal)

Another approach would be to use Attribute Exchange, so that when  
logging into a site with OpenID, the site would ask for all the feed  
mechanisms it understands, and you could release whichever mechanisms  
you have that you would like to share with the site.
