My opinion:
1) Yes - we should bundle a plugin (consumer)
2) Yes, yes, yes - for publishing entries and comments
3) No it should not be enabled by default

There are no other plugins enabled by default, not even akismet. As much 
as I like the concept of OpenID, I don't think we're at the point where 
it should be on by default yet.

My tuppence worth...
