terminology: mechanism vs framework vs scheme

Description

The document seems to use the term "mechanism" interchangeably to mean 3 different things: the framework described by p7, auth schemes that use this framework, and different forms of authentication/credential-caching/protection-space-establishment that are outside the scope of the document. I think the following changes would make the text more consistent throughout.

Sec 1, para 2: "mechanisms" -> "schemes"

Sec 2.1, para 1: "mechanism" -> "framework"

Sec 2.1, second last para: change first occurrance of "mechanism" to "framework". All others remain as-is.
