Sounds like some crossed communications wires. In any case, Johannes and I
have been working on something we think can provide a high degree of interop
not just for OpenID attribute exchange, but across other systems that will
need to interop with OpenID (Higgins, CardSpace, SAML, etc.)

He and I have a call to further bake it tomorrow, after which we'll get
something posted. Looking at how it will interop with is a
good place to start.

Dick, we should probably schedule a call with you and Barry and whomever
else wants to discuss the vocabulary interop issues later this week.

it ... happy to hear feedback on what we proposed
