usual REST patterns would suggest to use URI templates, so that the
service exposes its capabilities declaratively, and then the client knows
how to compose a request given that template, and concrete variable values.

https://github.com/dret/I-D/blob/master/template-desc/td-paging-01.xml
shows how this could be exposed RESTfully, based on a draft i am working
on (http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-wilde-template-desc-00). i am
actively working on this one because of the many template-driven services
that are out there, and often aren't properly link-driven, but instead
rely on hardcoding URI templates either in clients (very bad) or media
types (not quite as bad, but also unnecessarily restrictive).

cheers,

dret.
