Hello,

I wonder if anyone has thought about building an OpenID solution  
(provider/consumer) based on P2P and XFN ? I wrote a small  
presentation you can see here, if you want to see what I mean (very  
high level, not too technical):

This would allow to decentralize the identity repository, and store  
fragments of identities on your friends network. If people are  
interested, maybe we could start a page on the Wiki, and if it makes  
sense, where ?
