Google Profiles are now OpenIDs. Also, gmail webfinger declares that now too

Websites that are OpenID consumers are awesome (they allow you to log in with your own OpenID); websites that are only OpenID providers, no big deal.

It seems that all the big companies want to "own" your login.

I completely agree. Are there any official quotes from Google as to whether they might accept openID logins for some services? Probably not, but have they said so officially anywhere?
