---  I agree that microformats are the best way to represent yourself,
you should control you own data. The tricky thing is the transport
layer. Somehow when OpenID send back the token to the site that has
requested the verification it should also pass along this
microformatted data or a pointer to it in some fashion.

i think this is a great idea! you should email this to the OpenID
discuss list as well! I know they are working on OpenID 2.0 and these
sort of things are exactly what they are working on. If we can solve
these problems with existing technologies everyone wins.
