This document proposes an additional endpoint for OAuth authorization
servers, which allows clients to notify the authorization server that
a previously obtained refresh or access token is no longer needed.
This allows the authorization server to clean up security
credentials.  A revocation request will invalidate the actual token
and, if applicable, other tokens based on the same authorization
