Question about WFS.

Seems like a simple idea, but . . .


We're moving some layers to WFS for some testing of clients.

One question I have is can a Label layer as well as a Geometry layer be 
set up as two seperate WFS layer request from the same dataset.   It 
seems like this is possible, but wondering about anyone that may have 
done something like this.  The Label Layer would essentially be virtual 
in nature and be generated by MapServer.

Specifically, we'll want the client (AutoCAD in our case) to pull either 
the 3D Polyline data (3D attributes) and/or the 3D polyline labels, that 
MapServer Generates now with it's Image Output.  Is this an appropriate 
course of action, or should something else be considered.
