Arguments agaisnt OpenID are maybe valid, maybe not, I'm very far to have
the required knowledge to say that.
But OpenID can be a interesting link between the mothership
wordpress.comand the personal WP installations, and perhaps a low
profile way to greet wp
by doing a little advertising for wordpress.com.

I did that on my web site (audioblog.fr), not saying it's about OpenID, but
just proposing two ways to publish a comment :
- you have a wordpress.com account : you can use your wp.com url,
- you don't have one you use the regular comment form.

My two cents
