[Openid-specs-fapi] +1 on Plus

Plus is a horrible name because it's meaningless.  Think about it.  If we chose "Plus", the first part of every conversation in which it is used would be to have to explain what it refers to, which everyone would likely do slightly differently.  We shouldn't put ourselves or those using the specs in that position.

As Nat points out, OpenID is implicit in all names. So "Plus" is ok I guess... we have "Connect", so it's not that different. "Plus" is generic, but I guess that's the point. And at least it's only four letters :-)
