Ah good point.
I think we should shelve this at this point until it becomes a real
requirement - I may create an experimental branch in the subversion
repository for those who want to play with this for SRW in the
This maybe an example where ultimately SRU and SRW may have to part
company - i.e. where this is real need for structure in the request.
Arguably if the requirement is complex enough to require structure in
the request it is probably too complex for SRU which is intended to have
a low barrier of implementation.
