AX is central to our adoption of OpenID at Standard. Heck, we're just
doing it because we had started off with SXIP.

Being able to share and update attributes between our central database
and our partners is going to save everyone a lot of headaches in the
long run.

Now, I don't want the AX spec to hold up a final 2.0 for Auth, or to
detract from the quality of the core protocol, but I do think it's the
most compelling part of OpenID overall.
