Because we use the IDs for refering to other systems (bugzilla for

bugzilla) for refering to the user.

It's kind of a bad practice to automatically enforce a relation to a
specific Bugzilla account. It would be much better, if the user would be in
control of that, and be able to choose to which Bugzilla account she wants
to be associated (probably defaulting to the account corresponding to the
Novell account, provided we have that information).

You can configure the bugzilla id already (and refering to external bugzillas
was part of the spec, but is not implemented).

But when you start developing with openID, how can you convert this later to
the classic accounts later one to be able to use our bugzilla ?
