I don't know that anyone is deeply attached to having it as a scope.   The idea was to not require a request object.

Scopes implicitly specify the RS endpoint.   This is sort of modifying the endpoint for other scopes, and I understand that is a touch awkward.

Would something like having separate scopes like:

If you ask for email it comes back from user_info and if you ask for email_id it is in the id_token.

Or is there something else you are thinking such as adding an extra parameter?  We are trying not to diverge from OAuth as much as possible. (Yes I know id_token is a big divergence)

If people don't like the claims_in_id_token scope then lets get alternate proposals on the table quickly.

It really seems like something that should be isolated to a flag on the request (a new parameter or something in the request object). It feels out of place as a scope and will require ASs to have special conditional treatment of that one scope value (which I'd like to avoid as I'd think most implementers would).
