Fence straddling

Microsoft HealthVault accepts OpenID login from two specific OPs, Verisign and TrustBearer. All good, it's the RP's prerogative.

But they seem strangely ambivalent about their choice

Important: Microsoft doesn't provide OpenIDs and doesn't endorse OpenID or any particular OpenID provider.

if Microsoft's saying 'we will work with these OPs' is not an endorsement, what is it? I have to believe that Verisign and TrustBearer think of it that way.
