Hi Rowan

I think it is really useful functionality. We had functionality like  
this in SXIP 1.0 and SXIP 2.0, and brought up some of these issues  
back in September, and the decision was that this kind of  
functionality makes sense as an extension.

I have left this extension specification sitting on the back burner  
waiting for OpenID Authentication and OpenID Attribute Exchange to  
get completed.

Perhaps call it OpenID Relying Party Identity, or RPID for short. :-)
