I'd prefer to call them user at REALM OpenIDs. The concept of using this 
format is not only used for email but also for other types of 
identifiers such as RADIUS zones or Kerberos realms.

For example, user at EXAMPLE.COM could be a RADIUS login, a Kerberos 
principal and a Yadis ID/OpenID but not an email address.
