The question is, whether making it protocol-independent is really safe.

We are talking about the server-side implementation (MediaWiki as OpenID Server).

When the MediaWiki can be accessed via http: _and_ https: in the same way, then the consumer should trust one of them - not both, because the server could deliver different services, depending whether it is accessed via http or https.

So I changed my mind and think, that the $wgOpenIDTrustRoot value should _always_ reflect the actual way, a consumer has authenticated.

Closing as INVALID.
