While I am resistant to changing the specification without a
compelling reason and strong consensus, I am open to coming up with a
better term for this. The term IdP is already different from the
OpenID 1 terminology (OpenID server), and no official specification
has used it. If people agree on a better term, I won't resist.

+0 on OpenID Provider (that is, better than IdP, but not better enough
for me to defend if anyone objects)
