[OpenID] "Free" URLs and XRIs (was RE: why is xri so obtuse?)

While I've n ever been a big fan of i-names (see
http://vquill.com/2005/05/i-names-convention-searching-for-use.html for
example), this issue of cost is simply a side-trip, even a non-sequitur. No
one is forced to get an i-name to use OpenID. If you're building an RP
service, there are ways to get the use of an i-name for testing so that you
can implement the entire suite. That doesn't mean you, or any of your
friends, need to obtain an i-name! So don't use one yourself.

End of debate.
