Hi Mike,
I've dropped issue 2, Sean took charge of discussing it with IESG.
> About your issue 1:  The OAuth Core spec, where "scope" is primarily defined, includes the sentence "The [scope] strings are defined by the authorization server" (see http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-oauth-v2-25#section-3.3).  I could add that clarification to the Bearer spec as well to make it clear that the scope values are context-dependent, if that would address your concern.
Yes, but only partially. I would also like to see a clear statement that 
there is no centralized registry for scope values, plus some examples 
(more than 1) of how values of this attribute can look like.

With out this information I don't think the spec is implementable.
