I see. However, the essential thing of Kjetils proposal is to be  
explicit about the characteristics of each resource. So instead of  
"hardcoding" all the rules in the spec, we could communicate them to a  
client. That makes the system much more flexible.

But in that case, yes, it might become more of a general framework.  
And if that's not what we want as a workgroup, it's probably better  
not to build it.

Best,

Ruben
