I think it's a nice feature to allow users login with their account on a different provider (whether or not its a KC realm, Google+, or a SAML IDP).
Also, shouldn't jboss.org be counted as one of the social "networks" we support? I think adding some more professional social networks such as LinkedIn, GitHub and jboss.org! would be good.
