Announcing OpenID Attribute Properties Draft 1

I thought we had consensus that Drummond and I owned the vocabularies/ 
ontologies/schema/whatever-we-call-it action item?

We've come up with something rather beautiful (I think ;-)) that  
avoids a gap between XDI, LID and DIX (or whatever the latter is  
called these days) while not re-inventing the vocabulary wheel as you  
seem to be proposing.

I'm surprised that you are submitting this draft today because I  
believe it had been 1) Sxip's view that we don't need a minimal  
vocabulary for OpenID 2.0 at all, and 2)  it had been the consensus  
at our in-person meeting the day before DIDW that this action item  
was owned by Drummond and me.

To quote from the meeting notes:
