that looks like a good place where such a concept might be attached, but
we would still need to define them to be meaningful at the protocol level.
or we don't do that for now, and it's an interesting thing to keep in mind
for LDP++. essentially, that's the same pattern that Atom followed:
choosing the minimal useful and extensible design, and then let a thousand
extensions bloom... http://dret.typepad.com/dretblog/atom-landscape.html
