Is this not essentially the wrong way round. The liberty alliance is just
one of many possible athentication techniques. Rather than dotGNU becoming
a member of the liberty alliance, shouldn't the liberty alliance become a 
subproject of dotGNU just as the other auth projects are. Unfortunately 
this will probably never be the case unless dotGNU really establishes 
itself with it's hopes of surpassing .NET, an ever uphill battle.

Still it is nice that dotGNU is on the minds of the /. masses and 
especially Liberty Alliance members.
