I see your point, but I'm assuming AuthZ has to be federated as well. We don't know about Alice, she lives in her private cloud. We have to ask her AuthZ system if she can boot a new instance.
This flow is saying "The AuthZ resource lives on your side of the fence and I'd like to access it", but to do so Alice needs to grant permission and that interaction seems confusing to me.
