I think maybe there's some misunderstanding. The protocol isn't the
issue; I'm happy to use whatever (HTTP, LDAP, SOAP, XMPP, etc). The
issue is that OpenID, by its name, is open. We don't want to allow
anyone with an openid account to register with our webapps, we simply
want to centralise registration and sign-on for our employees.
