I believe there's a cleaner way to address this, that would not complicate the things that Alice needs to know about the inner workings of OpenID (and without her having to use different identities for different purposes): The PAPE-enabled backup service requests that the OP authenticates Alice in a manner compliant with certain policies, that are satisfactory to Alice's security requirements for a backup service.
