Yeah, I somehow remember having implemented this in the OGR GeoJSON driver. 
But this should not mean in any way that this an official endorsement from the 
GDAL project for the GeoServices REST API to become an OGC standard. As you 
know, GDAL core business is to read a lot of stuff that aren't standard in any 
way, sometimes reversed engineered, sometimes unfortunately completely closed 
by using proprietary external libraries. This is a pragmatic approach, not an 
ideological one.
