Hi all,

  I was looking into possible solutions re. MapServer legend and the 
possibility to only draw a legend (icon and text) based on the current 
visible features.
The idea is to have this functionality exposed through interfaces such 
as OGC GetLegendGraphic that can provide the drawing "context" (such as 
layers, bbox ...). The idea is to allow users to have a reasonable 
legend based on what they are drawing.
Do others run into this and see it as a useful addition?

best regards,
