Yes, that's what I meant, a library per media type, not one for each
eBay or Google service.  This would mean that for a very general media
type like Atom, that most developers should be content to have a URI,
HTTP, and Atom library in hand.  Having more specific, possibly
per-service libraries on top (even code-generated ones) may have some
value in some cases, but as I mentioned before, I wouldn't want them to
step on the toes of the URI/HTTP/Atom libs by defining things which
were already handled in those libs... like operations, for instance.
