Currently OpenID Connect defines one value 'none' which means that the request MUST be handled without showing any UI to the user.  Facebook defines (page, iframe,       popup, touch, wap) some of which are also in the OpenID UI Extension. I'm not sure we want to support iframe so I didn't include it in the list below.

Would it make sense to move the 'none' feature of display to the 'prompt' parameter? It seems to me that the semantics fit better. The main point of 'none' is that we don't want to ask the user any questions. The fact that no UI is displayed is a side effect of not asking the user for any input.
