This unfortunately isn't correct but I'm unsure how to clearly express this. I'm wondering if anyone else has any elegant solutions.

Basically, the Bearer token will be in the Authorization header. It won't be in the header alone which is why this won't work. It will have a suffix like Authorization: Bearer f136803ab9c241079ba0cc1b5d02ee77.

## Rationale

You can use the OAuth 2 Authentication scheme by defining it within the
"Authentication Schemes" section of an API Blueprint.

I consider OAuth 2 to be similar to Basic. A user should be able to use it directly in the Authenticated sections with some default values.

`Redirect Callback`.

The `Redirect` keyword has been added to represent the request that will be
made to the `Redirect Callback`.

What? Using the name Redirect will be really confusing for people since it doesn't represent the response (which is a redirect) but instead represents the redirect callback.
