I made the change "this specification" to "this document" in the editor's drafts at http://openid.bitbucket.org/openid-connect-basic-1_0.html and http://openid.bitbucket.org/openid-connect-implicit-1_0.html.

Right, and I spotted a mistake in the abstract:

Basic Client Implementer's Guide is not a specification per OIDF rule. It is just a guideline document.

So, it MUST NOT say

 > This specification intentionally duplicates

but it SHOULD say:

 > This document intentionally duplicates

Wouldn't it be more appropriate to make a reference to [1] from [2] where required..? Please ignore this mail - if this was done purposely...
