There are several worrying sections, for example:

When using OAuth2, the API calls will work with an access token instead of
> using the PSU credentials. The only admitted versions of the token grant
> step is the* "user password grant"* or the "authorization flow" of
> OAuth2.

There are several sections where the end-user enters their banking

OAuth 2 and OAuth are mentioned on many occasions but without reference to
