Brian Campbell:

A thread was started yesterday on this.
http://lists.openid.net/pipermail/openid-specs-ab/Week-of-Mon-20130617/003692.html

And it was discussed on the Jun 20 call (though the scope expanded a bit in discussion and as is seen on replies to the tread above)
http://lists.openid.net/pipermail/openid-specs-ab/Week-of-Mon-20130617/003699.html

The text at
http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-standard-1_0-21.html#client_Initiate_login
could use some work, IMHO.

But, at a minimum, login_hint needs to be fixed. I'll propose the following rough text:

login_hint
    OPTIONAL. If the client receives a value for this parameter, it MUST include that value in the subsequent authorization request using the login_hint parameter.

or something along those lines.
