I agree.  And if it does turn out to be a big problem, we can always
redefine it for 1.2.

Your brute force solution means some extra work for service authors
who want to reliably change the mapping to variants, but that is OK
with me as long as the specifiction of the variant-ID mechanism makes
it clear that this extra work is needed.

My main point is that, whatever solution is chosen, its more subtle
consequences must be completely defined in the spec.
