Apparently (according to an XRI proponent who I can't remember) using 
that proxy resolver alone is not sufficient because it doesn't do 
CanonicalID verification.

I'd much prefer it if the proxy resolver could do *all* of the work, so 
that the OpenID implementation can be as simple as what you say above.
