[OpenID] AddId! - A useful idea of mine?!

The issues with hcard are the same as they were with FOAF, so I think  
its use is pretty limited unless you put in an ACL mechanism, which  
adds a ton of complexity

AX is pretty simple, and nothing to parse, and then one less way of  
doing the same thing, and fits the existing name/value pair design  
pattern of a post, and the data is in an OpenID request as opposed to  
being in the Yadis file.

Just my $0.02 ...
