Subject: Discovering creation (dialog or POST) on a long list of containers

If you have a long list of containers, you can't tell which ones support dialogs without a request (even if only OPTIONS) on each one.

Actually, the same applies to creation by POST too.

I think this is more of a reason to make the Link header relation types available as predicates, so they can be included in the RDF body of a response of the a container that contains that long list of containers.

I've added a "discovery" section to the DelegatedUIUseCases page, the third is the one addressing this:

1.        (mp) When a Client has requested the representation of a resource or container, they should already have the information on what delegated UIs are supported.
2.        (mp) A Client should be able to get the information on what delegated UIs are supported on a given resource without getting its full representation.
3.        (mp) A provider may have many containers. (These are probably in a parent container). When a Client requests a list of all these containers (e.g. the representation of a parent container) it should be possible for the server to include information on which of those child containers support which kinds of delegated UI.
