...further complicating already overly complicated implementation. I have
started integrating OpenID into an existing system, and it wasn't too
pleasant an experience, even before XRI support was considered.

That shouldn't be much of a problem. The i-name is just another property of
the user, so it can be easily reassigned to another one (replacing the old
i-name display with i-number?).
