Could this specific issue be handled in the http protocol? Could  
there be a new response code that in effect says: "Status  
99999999999: The information resource you have requested is too #&%^  
big and the provider has decided that you need to use one of the  
following access methods to get at it", followed by a list of  
protocols in a manner similar to what lsid provides?

There are a couple of related codes already (101, 413), but neither  
is exactly what is desired it seems.
