It seems to me that the problem of multiple OpenID providers and people not knowing which one they're using would be a lot less serious if all of these companies that are OpenID providers actually accepted logins via OpenID themselves instead of everyone paying lip service to the idea while trying to be the one source of identity for everyone else. That way you could be using the same ID for twitter/google/facebook etc. and when it says 'use your google/twitter credentials to log in' then there is only one set of credentials to use.
