[OpenID] Relying Party Best Practices

I created this page on the wiki ages ago but never really did much to 
promote it. I just added a few more items of my own, and restructured it 
a little bit:


My thinking is that we could produce a bunch of best practices organised 
into different "quality levels", which would hopefully cause sites to 
aim towards maximum quality wherever possible, while making it clear 
which things are pretty-much required for any kind of useful 
implementation and which are just "would-be-nice" requirements.

This would also give an agreed-apon basis for site reviewers such as the 
editors of the OpenID Directory[1].

I encourage discussion, whether it be about the things I've already 
added to the list, or new things you think should be added, or about the 
categorization system, or basically anything to do with relying party 
best practices. :)
