I believe we change to the name of the OpenID Request Object to no longer include "OpenID", since it could actually be used for any OAuth Request.

New issue 788: Rename "OpenID Request Object" to "Request Object"

Michael Jones:

The data structure we call an "OpenID Request Object" actually has nothing OpenID-specific about it anymore.  It can be used as a generic way of sending request parameters to OAuth.  Thus, I think we should rename it to simply "Request Object", as this may facilitate our IANA registration of the "request" and "request_uri" parameters, when the time comes to do that.

Indeed, this is already the terminology used in http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-sakimura-oauth-requrl-03#section-2.

The only normative change that this will cause is renaming the error parameter "invalid_openid_request_object" to "invalid_request_object".
