Re: Issue-207

Hi Roy,

Thanks for your response.

Perhaps I misunderstood your original statement.  I understood you to state that the TSR itself is dynamic.

My understanding of Section 6 of the TPE is that the TSR is a static, but modifiable, JSON entity.  

If you view the TSR as a dynamic entity, an explanation would be helpful.

Best regards,

If that is true then isnít it also true that the only possibility for a dynamic response would be through the choice (by the server) of appending a particular status-id to the Tk header based on information in the request?
