My understanding is that OpenID would replace three of those four
fields. You would, as a blog author visiting other blogs, login to
your own blog, paste the URI into a blog you're reading, paste the
blog URI you're visiting back into your own blog, and you're
authenticated. I am obviously simplifying a lot, but this is the
general idea.
