[Openid-specs-ab] require_auth_time

JSON has a Boolean data type for representing logical values.  Given that this is a Boolean value and we're using JSON for our data structures, it's more natural to use the JSON type rather than to invent an ad-hoc string representation for the same thing.

Just a clarifying question.

In a registration request one of the parameters is 'require_auth_time'.
For some reason it is marked of type 'logical'.
It's the only parameter in any OpenID Connect request/response that is marked as such.

On the line it's represented as "true"/"false" anyway so why not a string with those two values ?
