[OpenID] Read/Write Web on OpenID vs the Incumbents

Not a glowing article but does point out issues that I think belong in
a public, authoritative FAQ:


Notable questions:

1. What if I don't want to centralize my identity?
2. Is OpenID really decentralized? Is that a good thing? Why? Who do I
go to for support if something goes wrong?
3. Who supports OpenID? How do I know?
4. etc

I started a bar bones FAQ page that I'd love to see folks add to... I
didn't see another page serving this purpose, so if I've duplicated
work, I apologize. Just point me in the right direction to channel
this effort... ;)
