Should we create an issue on whether containers can be members of other containers?

Re.  Issue 36 (container creation) I would like to propose that containers are created by sending
a POST to the platform URI.  This, essentially views the platform as the container of all containers
and is analogous to how resources are created as members of containers.

OTOH, if we decide that containers can contain containers then containers could be created by
a POST on the parent container.
