Huh?

Our proposals are the opposite of one-another.  In your proposal you have people querying scim to get oauth.  I’m saying you query rel=scim to get information about SCIM.  Querying rel=SCIM and receiving OAuth seems bass- ackwards does it not?

Further, having rel=oauth lets us define one RFC for all that covers all the security concerns for oauth discovery.  If we do it your way then every resource that registers its own discovery also has to have an oauth section that copies the oauth discovery stuff because there is no longer an oauth discovery relationship.
