[Openid-specs-ab] Lite Client spec rename

My concern would be the term "lite" as this is just a basic constraint profile of OpenID Connect, so would like the name "OpenID Connect: Basic Client Profile" of something along those lines.

Subject: [Openid-specs-ab] Lite Client spec rename

Based on the discussion last week [1], I would like to propose that the "Lite" spec is renamed to "Lite Client".

As John pointed out (and as a result clarified quite a few things for me), that's exactly what the spec is. John also added clarification in the spec's abstract section.

Renaming the spec would be better than keeping just the "Lite" name
because:
- servers cannot implement "Lite" (there isn't enough information in it)
- reader's expectations will be set clearly and upfront
