[OpenID] Sharing OpenID between sites (and APIs)

Hello everyone :)
   I've been thinking a lot about the problem of having to sign in
with your OpenID at every site (unlike other, close, single sign on
where going to, say, Blogger when logged in at GMail automatically
logs you in).  This also applies to data-sharing between sites in an
authenticated API style.
   Basically, I think it makes sense for every page on an
OpenID-enabled site to accept ?openid_url=ID, instead of only the
login page.
   See my article for more :

      Thoughts?
