[OpenID] Anti-XRI FUD

Actually, there should be nothing "reverse" about URL-to-XRI.

As already mentioned, XRI isn't limited to i-names (being single-rooted and
all), therefore http://xri.net/ mustn't be different from any other URL when
it comes to XRI resolution.

Good point, Dmitry. It makes sense that if XRI-to-URL mapping is similar to
DNS-to-IP mapping, and reverse DNS gets you from IP-to-DNS, then "reverse
XRI" should get you from a URL to an XRI.
