I was not aware of HAL. http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-kelly-json-hal-03
As you know, since JSON has no defined link relation syntax, by
itself, a JSON API is not quite RESTful.
There are people who is working to define such. One example is HAL.
Interestingly, our Userinfo response is almost like HAL: if we replace
_claim_sources to _link and
mandate there be "self" in it, and response type was changed to
application/hal+json instead of application/json, then it is HAL.
