[OpenID] Dumb Question: Why isn't http://xri.net/=bobwyman an OpenID?

>From the report you show, the Yadis diagnostic is doing the correct
resolution call to the xri.net HXRI proxy resolver. So it's sites that have
the pre-Yadis RP libraries that won't yet work with HXRIs (or with any other
Yadis-enable URL for that matter). Those libraries are only looking for the
HTML link elements (I think).
And I completely agree that an XRI in any format - "raw" i-name, with an
xri:// scheme prefix, or with an HXRIs proxy resolver prefix like
http://xri.net <http://xri.net/> - all need to be interchangeable. You're
right that this will require a slight fix at the i-brokers.

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.
