Pretty much everyone already has an identity now, what with AOL being a
provider now (all you need is an AIM account).  Yahoo accounts can be used
with http://idproxy.net.  Soon, Microsoft is going to start providing them
for anyone with a PC.  I don't mind WP being an identity provider, but the
client is what's really interesting for me.
