In the Social mailing list (http://mail.jabber.org/mailman/listinfo/ 
social) there was some discussion about OAuth in the past.

Use cases discussed where:

  * allow a third party to manipulate your roster;
  * allow a third party to publish something to your private PIP or  
PEP nodes (say FireEagle upadating your GeoLocation node);

Check the list archives for more information.
