>>> Pairwise ids are per domain.

I disagree with the above statement.... unless I am reading this wrong:


"The sector identifier list provides a way for a group of Web sites 
under single administrative control to have consistent pairwise sub 
values, independent of their domain names"


Providers that use pairwise sub values and support Dynamic Client 
Registration [OpenID.Registration] SHOULD use the sector_identifier_uri 
parameter. It provides a way for a group of websites under common 
administrative control to have consistent pairwise sub values 
independent of the individual domain names.
