Do you care how different kinds of web services on data set landing pages,
in metadata records, as part of a return from an OpenSearch query, when
advertised in an OAI-PMH metadata feed, etc. are described?  Do you think
having a common machine-understandable way of describing services across all
sorts of advertising, discovery, and access mechanisms would make developing
user interfaces, analysis tools, etc. easier and cheaper?
