OpenID and Windows

I had an interesting idea that I wanted others to tell me whether it makes sense. I periodically visit Internet Cafes on vacation and have asked myself, why is my identity only limited to Internet web sites. When I sit down to use someone else's PC, why can't my identity travel with me?

Wouldn't it be interesting if someone from the OpenID community wrote new Login method for Windows PC that hooks the GINA to allow a user to specify their OpenID? The notion of federating down to the desktop is compelling. It could be equally interesting within an outsourcing context where folks in India who may use Citrix for remote access as well.

What am I missing?
