My idea is ...

identifier in email like format

Instead of identifying myself with:
http://example.net/john-doe

I would prefer:
john-doe@example.net

We could have a standard approach where identifier@domain translates to http://domain/identifier

I think it would give OpenID more human friendly feel than using URL format.
