Shepherd writeup

As required by RFC 4858, this is the current template for the Document 
Shepherd Write-Up.

Changes are expected over time. This version is dated 24 February 2012.

(1) The document is requested to be a Proposed Standard.  The header
information for the document reflects this.

(2) The IESG approval announcement includes a Document Announcement
Write-Up. Please provide such a Document Announcement Write-Up. Recent
examples can be found in the "Action" announcements for approved
documents. The approval announcement contains the following sections:

Technical Summary

  This specification defines new parameters for the OAuth 2.0 token
  and introspection endpoints.  These parameters are targeted for use
  with the OAuth protocol adapted for constrained devices.

Working Group Summary

  This document was created and modified in response to issues raised
  by the OAuth working group.  They deal with a case which the ACE
  OAuth protocol does not currently support, but which is recently
  introduced in OAuth.  This document represents a consensus between
  the two groups.

Document Quality

  There exist at least two implementations which are using these
  fields as part of the overall work.  As noted above there was an
  issue with the OAuth working group but it has been resolved.


  Jim Schaad is acting as the Document Shepherd.  Benjamin Kaduk
  is the Responsible Area Director.
