Section 2.1 says:


It should say:



Usage of b64token is confusing. Definition is self explanatory but could be easily confused with Base64.

RFC7235 defines token68. Following some old RFC draft discussions (http://w3-org.9356.n7.nabble.com/p7-rename-b64token-to-token68-to-avoid-misunderstandings-td108256.html) I found that b64token was renamed to token68.

I believe it's appropriate to use naming of token68 (instead of b64token) in RFC6750. So that it is less confusing as well as refers to an existing standard.
