Bug Description

Some OAuth 2.0 providers have the token endpoint used in the web-based authentication on a different host than the authorization endpoint (an example is mcloud by China Mobile).

The plugin must support this use case, possibly by allowing the TokenPath parameter to hold a full URL.

Beware of potential cross-origin resource issues.

Indeed, but in this case the URLs are not coming from the server, but are statically defined in the .provider file shipped by the account plugin.
