ESA's Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Geohazards Supersites has a
Virtual Archive 4 Supersite [1] that implements the OpenSearch
specification along with the geospatial and temporal extensions [2]. They
are providing discovery for ESA's SAR archive for ERS-{1,2} and ENVISAT
data. Looking at a sample response query, they also provide browse images

It does raise the question about if the baseline OpenSearch specification
with geospatial & temporal extensions is sufficient for the majority of
the cases.
