Subject: Re: [search-ws] recordPacking: No Schema Change Required

No, recordFormat is not a good name, I just threw it out there for lack of a 
better suggestion at the time, my main point was to ask is it a good idea or 
not to make this a separate parameter.

But responseSchema isn't right.  This isn't at the response schema level, it 
is at the record schema level.  We already have a recordSchema parameter, 
this is sort of a "record sub-schema".    How about recordSubSchema for the 
parameter name?

I'm not sure that recordFormat is the right name.  This is not about how
records appear, but about the complete response.  I suggest that we call
it 'responseSchema'.  Its semantic is that it names the content to be

A problem with the new responseSchema parm is that its potential values
are constrained by the media-type that it is associated with.  We're
going to have to add a media-types section to Explain (necessary anyway)
and within that, list the responseSchemas available.  There will be an
implicit default text/xml media-type with a default value of
searchRetrieveResponse associated with SRU Explain records.

    <mediaType value="application/json">
        <responseSchema name="unpacked"
            <title>JSON with SRU record element data added</title>

I'm not going to be horrified to discover that we need to add
recordSchema as a sub-element of mediaType too.
