I'm not fully versed in MediaWiki code, but I just glanced through the
OpenID extension at
http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/OpenID/ , and
I don't think that extension code ever makes use of the canonicalID
attribute supplied by the OpenID PHP library.  So it seems the extension
doesn't provide that functionality you're looking for right now.
