@agreiner you make very valid points, and your examples are very plausible. Some dimensions are always orthogonal, some dimensions are used in combination _for some applications_. There is no single correct answer and thus no single mechanism. And the dimension may be specified using 

1. HTTP conneg
2. key-value pairs in a URI query string
3. within a standard or profile that specifies many dimensions and other aspects
4. ... other ways ... 

There are solid precedents for all of these. I think the purpose of this thread is to recognise that CRS is often, though not always, an independent query dimension and thus might be implemented using HTTP conneg.
