Just to clarify the issue: Users like to have memorable usernames, and likely memorable OpenIDs. So http://example.com/hans would be a desirable URL at example.com. For OPs with literally 100Ms of users, http://example.com/hans would be a coveted URL and if it is not being used, example.com would like to issue it to someone else. I think the tradeoff of RPs understanding to strip fragments when displaying them is worth removing a barrier for very large OPs from joining OpenID. -- Dick _______________________________________________ specs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://openid.net/mailman/listinfo/specs
