Just putting this here for my own purposes so I can find it again later for the most part, but has anyone done any work with this spec for XML User Profiles
? It seems fairly well thought out, although im thinking it would still need a little work to get it truly useful in almost all situations. It would be fairly easy to write some coldfusion code to use this schema and seems like once you went that way it would be pretty extensible.
Of course, when you talk about taking things like this outside of a database you start having some other concerns, security and speed being only two examples, but would be great for things such as distributed logins (think msn's passport or googles login) as well as open source projects.
Anyone heard of this or had any thoughts?
