I had a few thoughts after reading about OpenID
. However, after doing only a very small amount of digging I can see these aren't new thoughts.
Have an OpenID that anyone can use because it performs no authorization. You'd specify a URI like http://deletethis.net/anonymousopenid/yournamehere and you'd immediately get an anonymous OpenID
associated with that URI. This has already been implemented by Jayant Gandhi.
Have an OpenID that consists of a group of member OpenIDs. To login as the Group OpenID you need to login with any of the member OpenIDs. This is discussed more by Dmitry Shechtman on his blog.
I find that I already have a couple of OpenIDs without even trying due to AOL giving out OpenIDs. I'd like for all of my
OpenIDs to point to one canonical OpenID. It looks like this may already be possible by the OpenID
I guess I'm a little late to the scene.
