Generalization is not necessary. What I'm asking for is examples that
illustrate some of the possible uses. One of the examples that you've
come up with, using entry point to provide hydra:Links to
hydra:Collections of instances of the classes supported by the API, is
something that I've learnt about on this mailing list, not in the
spec. I think the Hydra specification could benefit from having more
examples like this. This is why I like your proposal to have the
specification discuss a particular example API, which would illustrate
some of the uses of Hydra in examples.
