Re: [dxwg] Profile negotiation [RPFN]

Thanks, Lars,

Can you explain the value that you see in having the same URL for both 
datasets? What gives me pause here in particular is the mention that one 
is a beefed-up version with links to images. To me, that suggests that 
they are really two different resources; one clearly contains more 
stuff. Would you also make both datasets available under separate URLs 
for human consumption?
