Will have to do both, start with #1 and proceed to #2 once OAUTH 2.0 becomes and standard

So there are two possibilities:

1. Just submit the Registry addition request, siting OpenID Connect as the spec.
2. Create another spec, which is an OAuth extension, and submit the Registry addition request
    based on it.

Section 11.2 process is sort of clear, but I am not sure if we take Option 2., where shall we submit the OAuth extension spec.
