There are three "special cases":
1. no records
2. server decides
3. all the records
And three "special values":
3. omit the parameter
But do we really need a special case for "all the records"? It would only apply
on the initial query (after that the client knows how many there are). So on the
initial query, let the client supply a very large number for maximumRecords.
Then it seems to me that zero is the natural value for "zero records" and I would
prefer "omit the parameter" over "-1" for "server decides".
