I’m ambivalent on the pros v. cons (I agree with all of them), so I would vote in favor of the change, just to be more compatible with OGC.

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
