Understood and agreed.

I think so - as that use case may not always hold true. How about this:
<openid rdf:resource="http://danbri.org/"/ class="delegate">
<openid rdf:resource="http://danbri.livejournal.com/" class="server/>
This matches other OpenID uses :
<link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" />
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://samruby.myopenid.com/" />
