Two New OpenID Working Groups?

Votes have just opened up to OpenID Foundation members around the creation of an OpenID and OAuth Hybrid extension working group and a Contract Exchange extension working group. The OpenID and OAuth stuff is really interesting to me (see what Google and Plaxo did) and the Contract Exchange bit seems crazy out of scope for OpenID. Thus you can guess how I voted! :)

Also, welcome Don Thibeau as the new Executive Director of the Foundation!

While you need to be an OpenID Foundation member to vote ($25 per year), the working groups themselves are open to anyone for participation!

I voted yes to both. While I'm not yet convinced by Contract Exchange, I tend to think there's no real harm in folks working on these things if they personally want to solve the problem. Is it the OpenID brand you're most concerned about?
