I think we can make it a feature of the spec API that certain methods of
configuration are 'required' - and that the o.a.amber.OAuth class
performs config & implementation discovery.

But as we disagree, maybe you could make a proposal for what the entry
point(s) should be instead and we could have a vote or something?
