FWIW, I'm all in favor of this and I'm happy to flip the bit and add members
to project ASAP.  I simply want to ensure that, from a trademark
perspective, the OIDF officially knows about and endorses this use.   It's
not actually granting Google any rights -- it's just saying that the OIDF is
cool with its members using 'openid.googlecode.com' to host some work.  (So
if I had a vote, it'd be +1.)
