The OGC have asked us to change the following in our ESIP Best Practices 
for Open Search

User startIndex instead of startPage as a means of result set navigation.


  * startIndex is part of the base Open Search specification, startPage
    is not
  * Introducing startPage to the base Open Search specification
    introduces the possibility of error cases when clients mix the two


  * startIndex is less intuitive (imho) than startPage for page navigation
  * we have a number of implementations and best practices reliant on
    startPage (I don't want to add a custom non-spec parameter as that
    will decrease interoperability with OGC-compliant implemtations)

Please respond with your thoughts on this change by COB 01/20/15
