[Openid-specs-ab] HTTP-Based Logout renamed to Front-Channel Logout

Carrying out a working group decision from a while ago, the OpenID Connect HTTP-Based Logout specification has been renamed to OpenID Connect Front-Channel Logout.  It is now much parallel to the OpenID Connect Back-Channel Logout specification.  The renamed specification is available at http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-frontchannel-1_0.html.  "frontchannel_" prefixes were also added to the discovery and registration identifiers, again, paralleling the corresponding "backchannel_" prefixes in the Back-Channel specification.

The three logout specifications now all reference one another and describe the relationships between them.

The next step the working group should probably take to progress the logout specifications is to reconcile the different session identifier definitions contained in them.  This renaming also helps us progress on the errata process, since we'd decided to add the Front-Channel and Back-Channel specifications to the set of referenced related specifications.
