New issue 1006: Clairify text in Third Party Initiated Login

Brian Campbell:

In http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-core-1_0.html#ThirdPartyInitiatedLogin what is the sentence, "This login initiation endpoint can be a deep link at the RP, rather than a default landing page." supposed to mean?  

I was recently talking about 3rd party initiated login with a developer and those words were the source of some confusion. 

Is the intent to say that the user can end up at a deep link at the RP via starting at the login initiation endpoint and using the target_link_uri parameter? Or something along those lines? The login initiation endpoint itself isn't a deep link but the text in that sentence reads like it is.

Some clarification in errata might be helpful.
