OpenID/Oauth hybrid [was Re: specs Digest, Vol 27, Issue 3]

In the future, we might update our OAuth service to allow developers to 
pass us the scope dynamically, rather than binding the scope to the CK. 
However, we'd still probably require developers to agree to a TOS in 
order to get a CK/CS.

I'm concerned about having to tell developers to pass the CK via the 
scope parameter for the first revision, and then later telling them that 
scope parameter actually means the scope. I'd like to have one parameter 
(possibly optional) that means CK, and another parameter (also optional) 
that means Scope. Overloading a single parameter can get really messy in 
the long run.
