link/@type and content negotiation
in the context of some work we're doing that is attempting to describe
RESTful services, one important problem is how to deal with media types.
for HTTP URIs, servers can return various media types and this may
happen via HTTP content negotiation. Atom's link/@type links to a URI
and specifies a media type, but this mechanism supports only one type
that can be specified. does anybody have any opinion or experience or
best practice what to do in scenarios where that URI is actually
supporting content negotiation?
thanks and kind regards,
