As others have pointed out, this looks like some familiar technologies.

We know that OpenID is widely supported, by web client, server and
application software, and some of the biggest providers.  OpenAuth
perhaps less so, but they're spoken of as a pair.

How about a proper exposition of:
 - Does Fediz include an implementaion of OID/OAuth?
 - If yes, does it do other things too, and what's the motivation?
   How would you react to accusations of "embrace and extend"?
- If no, why should we want another, competing framework/standard?
- If no, where is it in fact supported in the real world?

I think we should see these issues properly addressed in the proposal!
