    I am both a consumer and IT security analyst and I don’t like this solution one bit. It does nothing to solve any real user issues (I don’t know anyone who has problems using Facebook Connect) while increasing the amount of data collected about the user. If, as you claim, consumer find OpenID too difficult how much more difficult will it be for them to understand how to disable XAuth?

    I could see why you don’t like this as a security person. But I don’t agree that users will find it difficult to understand how to disable XAuth.
