The OAuth WG is looking for assistance from the application area community.

OAuth 2.0 [1] defines a URI-namespaced method for defining extension grant types[2]. The first specification to use this method needs to pick a URI identifier for using SAML assertions [3]. Options proposed:

urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:assertion
urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:grant_type:saml:2.0:bearer
http://oauth.net/grant_type/saml/2.0/bearer

Is there a BCP established for this? We need to pick a value quickly and move on.
