[mapserver-dev] RFC 101: Content Dependant Legend Rendering

We do need another mode since often you pass enough info (extent/size) so that a scale can be computed and symbols scaled accordingly. Maybe just mode=clegend (in keeping with query/nquery)?

How should we be detecting that we need a content dependant legend for mode=legend. I'm not sure that checking we have size/extent parameters in the url makes sense in this case, should we rather be adding a mode=contentdependantlegend (or a shorter/nicer mode name) ?
