These are taken from OAuth, and represent one aspect of data access 
that's been requested by the service. As it says below, it's a string 
that represents "what the subject of the receipt is allowed to do". In 
the case where you're doing an actual OAuth or UMA transaction, it makes 
sense to simply copy the "scope" value from that straight through. If 
you're not, it's still a valuable field as it can help describe the 
nature of the receipt itself.
