Marius, see the analysis at
http://www.lifewiki.net/openid/ConsolidatedDelegationProposal, now updated
to include Josh's lastest thinking from

In sum, not being able to send the IdP-specific identifier: a) forces the
IdP to redo resolution, which is unnecessary and slows performance, and b)
prevents the protocol from being stateless.

Have the RP send both the portable identifier and the IdP-specific
identifier solves both problems.
