I did a bit more research regarding this. OpenID Connect doesn't
explicitly prevent that "response_type=token" must not be used. There is
just this sentence in the specs:
NOTE: While OAuth 2.0 also defines the token Response Type value for the
Implicit Flow, OpenID Connect does not use this Response Type, since no
ID Token would be returned.
So to be compliant with pure OAuth 2 clients (like swagger.ui) , which
don't know about "id_token" response_type, I actually suggest to support
response_type=token for clients with enabled implicit flow. I've sent PR
for this https://github.com/keycloak/keycloak/pull/2110
. Let me know if
you think that we shouldn't merge it.

Just add this to the issue and close it as rejected.

Question about https://issues.jboss.org/browse/KEYCLOAK-2351
allow response_type=token ?
Basically OAuth2 allows that  but OpenID Connect doesn't for
nor hybrid flow to use response_type=token alone without "id_token" or
"code"   .
I am fine with support response_type=token, however doesn't we break
OpenID Connect specs then? Or should we have option (either on/off
or list of valid response_type combinations) in configuration to
whether it's allowed or not?
