[Esip-discovery] New specification for the OpenSearch Parameter Extension

It was all so simple before!
The current usage of the template parameter in the ESIP RFC is still 
valid I believe.

This does afford support for additional specification of parameters that 
were a hole in certain areas.

For example, spatial constraint via WKT. We could now use the pattern 
attribute to limit a services supported spatial types within WKT.

ECHO only supports polygon, linestring and point within WKT. Until now 
we had no means of describing that in the OSDD.

Another concern is that the huge buy-in for Open Search was largely 
driven by it's simplicity. We are moving away from that.
