param, and POST param (body), and the text goes "Access tokens sent in the
authorization header must be Bearer
If the client is using the HTTP GET method, it SHOULD send the access token
in the authorization header." so it is saying:

1. If the access_token is sent in the HTTP header, it has to use the Bearer
tokens scheme.
2. If the request is GET, it has to use HTTP header to send the
(3. Implicitly, because OAuth allows - do as the OAuth says for the POST,
i.e., Body.)

Are you suggesting that we should add 3. so that people does not have to
read OAuth.2.0.Bearer?
