[mapserver-dev] call for vote on RFC 82

I am sorry for not commenting on this earlier. I am generally +1 on this 
addition, I'd just suggest a few changes to the RFC text to ease the 
life of our users:

- Explicitly indicate that the layer GetMetadata param is optional and 
if not provided then the service metadata is returned (this is what the 
pseudo-code suggests, did I read it right?)

- Add some usage examples, i.e. mapfile snippets and sample requests 
showing the various possible use cases ... that will serve as docs until 
officially documented

- There is no mention of docs. What's the plan on that front?

Also, a general question: does any other OWS server handle this the same 
way (i.e. with a vendor-specific GetMetadata)? If yes then it would be 
great to have references in the introduction.
