Has any thought been given to scalability. I know of web applications where 
the number of "items" can be in the 1000's or more. Returning 1000+ Link 
headers seems inappropriate in that case. Perhaps what is needed is an 
"item-list" link which points to another resource where the full "item" 
listing can be retrieved in some suitable fashion?
