[Openid-specs-ab] Endpoint registration !?

At the EuroCAMP meeting yesterday and today we spent some time discussing OpenID Connect.

Specially the second day when thanks to John and Nat's introduction day one people had a better grasp of the subject, a discussion on how OIC could be used in our (higher education) environment started.

It was quite obvious that we for instance needed more and more varied identity information.
So the (crazy?) idea came up that we would define a new endpoint beside the user-info endpoint, the eduPerson endpoint.
Ideas about group/scim/authz endpoints also surfaced.

Since I guess there is nothing that prevents us from defining one or more endpoint with different characteristics than the standard ones to be use in/by our community it still would be interesting to make them known to a bigger community.

So, it brings up the question about registration of endpoint names and characteristics.

Any thoughts about this ?
