[Openid-specs-ab] Developer Feedback

The other documents don't describe the concept of a "request object" the other documents describe specific requests. I think that the description/introduction of the document is not accurate but I do believe that it's trying to get across the concepts of some framework concepts that rest of the specifications use in a very limited way

I read it the other way around:

(currently draft 3)

Abstract: "This document describes the more advanced request and response formats for OpenID Connect."

Introduction: "The OpenID Connect Core 1.0 specification defines the basic requests and responses."

More to the point, in the Framework document the term "framework" 
appears only once (as "trust framework"), an unrelated meaning. It 
doesn't elaborate at all on what one should understand by OpenID Connect
