[Openid-specs-ab] Corrected Registration error response examples to use WWW-Authenticate

Assuming the link has been updated, the example code seems to be wrong.

It states:

  HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
  WWW-Authenticate: error="invalid_redirect_uri",
    error_description="One or more redirect_uri values are invalid"
  Cache-Control: no-store
  Pragma: no-cache

As you can see, this is missing the required authorization schema, which in
our case is "Bearer".
The same is true for the ReadError.

RFC6750 states the example correctly as:

     HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
     WWW-Authenticate: Bearer realm="example",
                       error_description="The access token expired"
