my 2min research did not yield a conclusive answer to this, but it is actually possiblt to define a parameter to a media type when the media type is already existing and does not have that parameter?
The rule should be (though I have no pointer) to ignore unknown parameters. So, it would be fine.
yes, unknown parameters MUST be ignored, but unless there is some
registry for parameter values that can populated with parameter
definitions independently of the media type registration, it is hard for
developers to understand what some parameter is supposed to mean.
I was just asking because I had the impression you have a completely human targeted user agent.
no, we're building an API (targeted on spatial information services) and
for our demos we need something that is a UI, but the API should be
equally useful for machine-to-machine scenarios as it is for UIs.
Is there anything in public to read that explains what you are building?
http://dret.net/netdret/publications#liu10a describes the overall
design, and we're currently working on a paper that highlights the
decentralized nature of our approach (as opposed to many other LBS
scenarios that are more vertically integrated).
