Subject: $format / jsonverbose question

In the odata docs, there is some info on json verbose (ie:  http://www.odata.org/documentation/odata-version-3-0/json-verbose-format/ ), something I hadn’t noticed in the past.


Specifically, it refers to a $format option of jsonverbose. 


It can also be called using the request header to get the same, ie application/json;odata=verbose


On the test systems I tried, ?$format=jsonverbose didn’t work (V2/V3) but adding an accept header of application/json;odata=verbose did.  The difference seems to be that when you use verbose, the returned object is simpler (no meta information). 


Seems a bit backwards, I would have thought verbose would give me more info, not a simpler set.


http://services.odata.org/V3/OData/OData.svc/?$format=json - metadata


http://services.odata.org/V3/OData/OData.svc/  - no metadata, ie simpler

accept: application/json;odata=verbose


I also notice that in V4, the verbose option doesn’t work at all.



What was the intent here?
