How URLs are mapped to capabilities is server-specific. If someone uses a
different URL for that capability, the server may or may not resolve to the
same capability. This is application-defined behavior... but again, this is a
corner case (or advanced case). In general, the mapping rules are expected to
be simple... and if they're not... don't use ezcap... use something else.

What am I missing? I don't know if we're on the same page or not? :)
