Would it be useful to have an OpenID Connect technical FAQ? Is there one
already? If not, I can help set it up as a separate wiki/living document.

Off the top of my head, some questions and answers that should be listed
are:

- What's OpenID Connect, and how is it different than OpenID 2.0?
- How is OpenID Connect different than OAuth 2.0?
- What is the id_token?
- What's the UserInfo endpoint?
- What's the CheckSession endpoint?
- When should clients use the Implicit vs Code flows?
- What's the identifier for the user?
- How do I extend OpenID Connect?
