The split between IxD and Usability

More and more lately, I've been thinking that the split between the
work of an interaction designer and the work of a usability specialist
is causing a bit of a rift in the actual implementations of the
resulting designs.

For example, I've seen quite a few sites designed by interaction
designers (reputable ones at that) that fail in all kinds of ways in
terms of usability.

Usability of login

We are looking at the issue of how customers can securely identify
themselves on websites to access their personal information. Our
client operates the loyalty program of a large corporation.
Obviously, single-sign-on would make a huge step forward. But, are
there other more innovative ideas out there. Currently, their
customers receive a card for the loyalty program with their customer
identification number. Then the customer has to enter a PIN on the
website to get at their information. If the registered for the
program by mail, then they won't have a PIN.
