[Openid-specs-ab] Additional issues/questions with Basic

Hi Chuck,

I was going through some of my mail working on closing the remaining issues to finish the OAuth Bearer RFC and I ran across this message, which I realized that I never responded to.

Could you expand on "This violates OAuth"?  Is there a change you'd recommend in the Connect specs as a result?

(The second point is now moot, as we decided to remove the Check ID Endpoint at the last in-person working group meeting.)

                                                                -- Mike

2.2.1  redirect_uri:  A redirection URI where the response will be sent. This MUST be pre-registered with the provider.

This Violates OAuth

2.3.1 CheckID: access_token:  REQUIRED. The ID Token obtained from an OpenID Connect Authorization Request.

Why is this the ID Token, but called access_token?

Why would we use POST if it's in an AuthZ header?
