Facebook to use OpenID?

As the French would say "c'est non possible", but if rumours are true then Facebook has about-faced on its policy of not integrating with OpenID by joining the board of the OpenID Foundation.

Does this finally mean one standard for access and that open standards have won out over protectionism (Facebook Connect)?

Lets hope so!

Further update, this has been confrimed by Facebook's Mike Schroepfer in his developer blog posting:
http://developers.facebook.com/news.php?blog=1&story=192 and said:
We opened Facebook Platform with a belief that community innovation can add value to users that we can't build on our own

IMHO this is a great stap forward for standards, the web and connectivity between sites!
