OpenID 1.x messages do not contain an openid.ns field.  That field was
introduced in OpenID 2.0, and states that "All messages in OpenID
Authentication 1.1 omit the "openid.ns" parameter".

If you are sending requests with openid.ns set to anything other than
"http://specs.openid.net/auth/2.0"; you are going to run into trouble.
