§  from Michele Bustamante - here is a demo that shows associating cards with ASP.NET membership in the comments field for the user. And it relies on the email address to associate the card to a user uniquely. See the CardSpace sample in this post:http://www.dasblonde.net/2007/03/23/SDWest2007SessionResourcesAndCode.aspx.  It also includes a WCF sample, simple, using wsFederationHttpBinding
