It's also odd to support one specific organisation that hands out their
own identifiers and not others. Why add special support for i-names and
not for AOL, Yahoo, or Google accounts? Just because their "account
system" is more complicated and a bit decentralised (as multiple IdPs
("proxies") share a common namespace)?
