We probably only need openid -- ie: authentication, not authorization.
FAS does provide OpenID at this time although we hesitate to officially take
it out of beta as there's still reports of sites that don't work with FAS's
openid provider (although a few months ago I reset my password on all of my
open-source related bug trackers/etc and everyone that was an openid client
worked with FAS).
Transifex can't do openid authentication at this time but if it did then we
should be able to link FAS accounts with transifex accounts.
