I did that way on purpose since the other bug has more content than this one.

This appears to have been fixed in r92924.

Remark: I checked this against extension OpenID (trunk version, which I maintain), and did not find a negative side effect to that or from that extension.

Background info: E:OpenID has an option tab in preferences where users can opt-in that their e-mail address is updated from their OpenID sreg [1] record on every OpenID-login ("Update the following information from OpenID persona every time I log in: E-mail address").
