If the bank implements OpenID properly you can still have one OpenID for each account, with distinct passwords, personal security certificates, hardware keys, or whatever else you care to use for authentication. Nothing in the OpenID spec forces you to use a single identity everywhere, or to rely on a particular provider. OpenIDs can easily be both more secure and more convenient than most bank sign-in processes I've encountered.
