[Openid-specs-ab] client secret

We have extended the request for an access token to include a secret_type parameter.  
This indicates if client_secret is a JWT or shared secret.

Oauth 2.0 Sec 2.3.2 states that the authentication method is established for the client at registration, and the token endpoint uses the registered method for the client identifier.

Should we change this to be consistent with the OAuth 2.0 spec?  (I suspect so)

It is potentially a breaking change for some implementations so it should be discussed.
