Roku as an OAuth Identity Provider

One of the pain points for users on Roku is having to sign into each service with a username/password. The username is almost always the email address which is already something that is attached to a user's Roku account. If the Roku API supplied some type of OAuth token that an HTTP endpoint could receive and trust as it is signed by roku then this would avoid having the user enter in a new username/password for the service. Is there any way to get access to the email address of the roku account and then use this as a signed OAuth token to access the resource. Something like what facebook or twitter support. It could prompt the user first to make sure it is ok to use info just like facebook does before you sign into a site that supports facebook connect.

Something like roku connect?
