Unless I'm mistaken, the mozillaid doesnt handle claims as such (other than email address). It looks like a very simplified openid. 

I guess it could be used in uma to authenticate the requester, but it seems to me that openid connect has a lot more scope for handling richer claim requests by the AM?
