In the context of this API that seems fine.

Obviously this is not part of the main HTTP 1.1 protocol, are there guidelines anywhere for implementing proprietary HTTP error codes?

Thanks.

Dear Matthew,

This is a Response to your comment send to the Media Annotion WG on Fri,
26 Aug 2011.
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-media-annotation/2011Aug/0031.html

Thank you very much for reviewing our document. Please excuse the delay in answering your request. The Media Annotation WG has discussed this issue during the 12th Face-to-Face meeting and agreed that the 501 status code does not fit our needs. In order to have a clear semantic, we have decided to declare our own status code, as follows:

- Numerical Code: 562
- Textual description: Property not supported
- Example: only a subset of GET methods for properties implemented

Please let us know ASAP, if you agree to our solution, as we plan to proceed to Proposed Rec next week.

Best regards,

Thierry Michel
on behalf of the MAWG.
