My suggestion was affected by one of the earlier reviewer. I thought 
that was quite reasonable.
To me, the definition of the each terms are as follows now:

Authorization Request
OAuth 2.0 Authroization Request

Authentication Request
Authorization Request used to obtain the Authentication Result through 
the use of OpenID Connect extension parameters and profiled scopes

As a section header, I believe Authentication Request is more appropriate.
