Drummond,
Thanks for the detailed response. BTW: Below, you'll see what is happening
when I use the Yadis diagnostic on the HXRI. I believe that users will, in
fact, expect XRI's, i-names, and HXRI's to be interchangeable. I'm using
2idi.com, so I guess I have to wait for them to put in the fix?

Also, I find it a bit odd that the Yadis diagnostic reports a "pass" for
OpenID... Apparently, the metric for "passing" is pretty forgiving.
