[OpenID] AddId! - A useful idea of mine?!

Hello everybody!
Sometimes I visit a blog and they have tons of buttons like "Add to 
Bloglines", "Add to MyMSN". Why can't they be smart enough to find out 
the service I actually use (which might not be in their list now)?
On LiveJournal, one can add OpenID accounts as friends. However on LJ 
userinfo sites there is a nice "Add me as a friend" button which I won't 
see on an external site.
Some time ago I've came up with a simple idea. Why not describe services 
you use (like feedreaders or social networking sites) in your XRDS so 
that other sites who have asked for your iName or URL can find them and 
provide a customized link for me?
Now I've finally written down the idea into a small draft, which is 
attached to this mail. Is anybody in the OpenID or Yadis community
