This is a popular misconception. As was noted on this thread, many
OpenID provideers may provide you an email or other information if you
asked for it and user had supplied it.

But even if not, nothing actually prevents you from *just asking the
user* for the email if you need it. See stackoverflow for an example
when you authenticate yourself and then can supply more information
about yourself. These things are simply unrelated.
