Open Identity Trust Framework (IIW)

I think I am going to forget about "Identity Trust Network"  I like the title and work behind "Open Identity Trust Framework" being done by the folks at IdCommons at Internet Identity Workshop.  This work seems to be at a very early stage, but it is important that an open standard/framework for trust be available for the certification of identities in the cloud being provided by Identity Providers.

The concern with not having such framework would be some sort of National ID that is fully controlled by a single organization (such as the Federal Government) or some group of high profile companies.

The ideal scenario would be the use of a framework where organizations that are Identity Providers can be judged and rated on how "trusted" the services they provide are (since they certify the trust of the identities they manage).
