User-Authentication Services

Yahoo Is A Surprising Second Among User-Authentication Services
No surprise: most chat participants opting to use a third-party authentication service go for the popular Facebook Connect. More of a surprise: signing in with a Yahoo account is the second most popular choice.

hmmm - wondering if this going to turn into a service provider war?

How much would Facebook/Yahoo/Twitter pay me as a website content provider to have my users authenticate against their services exclusively?

Surely there has to be value associated to Yahoo that you 'have' to use a Yahoo username in order to authenticate to my website.

Do you think Yahoo would pay per user per month or maybe even per user per login?
