I agree, "limited access" makes sense. I am happy to create a PR, if required.


Current wording is:


The OAuth 2.1 authorization framework enables a*n* *third-party*
application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service, either on
   behalf of a resource owner by orchestrating an approval interaction
   between the resource owner and the HTTP service, or by allowing the
   *third-party* application to obtain access on its own behalf.  This
   specification replaces and obsoletes the OAuth 2.0 Authorization
   Framework described in RFC 6749 <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6749>.
