i was wondering whether some sort of oai data provider auto-discovery
should be part of the protocol? the way this is done for
http://unapi.info/ seems pretty reasonable to me: just provide the
base url of the data provider as href attribute of a link element and
signal oai identifiers within the pages.
does that sound reasonable? if so, should it be part of the protocol
or rather an implementation guideline?
