Yes, I believe that to be the correct thing to do...I also believe (as 
you suggested) to get competitive offers from different companies for 
the hosting needs of the OpenID foundation. Dedicated servers can be 
rented for as low as US$ 40-50 per month. I could consider to offer 
installing and maintaining the needed applications if it's of any help.

Yes - or perhaps the amount is completly overblown. One year hosting != 
10K, sorry...

Yes, I believe so too. Dick, thanks for taking this issue up in the 
right manner.
