I just wanted to add that prior to this discussion, I was a strong believer in OpenID; and would have killed to have it added to WP.....
But from the arguments seen made and the questions raised, I no longer believe that OpenID is the answer; nor am I that excited over the prospect of it being added to the core.

For what it's worth: I added OpenID support to my blog for maybe two months, and I had a total of maybe 15 comments whose authors elected to use the OpenID features. The (many) rest just used the old name/email thing; and that pretty much made me remove it......
