This is better.

I still see problems though.

Section 2.2 specifies to use application/x-www-form-urlencoded encoding, 
but doesn't mention the character encoding to use. This may be a 
non-issue now for scopes, but it would be for extension parameters.

Section 2.4 still uses quoted parameters without using the quoted-string 
constructs. This leaves implementers in the dark about whether they can 
use existing quoted-string parsers or not.

Best regards, Julian
