TypeKey: Passport for Blogs?

movabletype.org: News: MT3 will apparently include something called TypeKey. From the context, I’m guessing that it’s a system whereby someone can post comments under a certain identity by logging into a central authentication server.

With a suite of comment management features and versatile comment registration — utilizing a centralized authentication service we’re calling TypeKey — Movable Type 3.0 will give you more control than ever before over the public face of your website….

In addition to providing authentication for comment registration, TypeKey’s open nature will enable developers to build applications upon the infrastructure, utilizing its authentication hooks.
