OAuth 2.0 as a building block for OpenID++?

It's worth engaging with this discussion now, while things are still plastic...

The past few months I've had a bunch of one on one conversations with
a lot of different people – including many of folks on this list –
about ways to build a future version of OpenID on top of OAuth 2.0.
Back in March when I wrote a draft of OAuth 2.0 I mentioned it as one
of my future goals as well
Basically moving us to where there's a true technology stack of TCP/IP
-> HTTP -> SSL -> OAuth 2.0 -> OpenID -> (all sorts of awesome APIs).
Not just modernizing the technology, but also focusing on solving a
few of the key "product" issues we hear time and time again.
I took the past few days to write down a lot of these ideas and glue
them together. Talked with Chris Messina who thought it was an
interesting idea and decided to dub it "OpenID Connect" (see
http://factoryjoe.com/blog/2010/01/04/openid-connect/). And thanks to
Eran Hammer-Lahav and Joseph Smarr for some help writing bits of it!
So, a modest proposal that I hope gets the conversation going again.
