Thanks, I'll take a look. The ows namespace metadata lookup code is tied
heavily to a 3-character namespace with 1-character selector for
performance reasons. The code allocates the hash lookup key once (e.g.
xxx_title) and then just changes the xxx to wms, wfs, ows in turn to do the

The oga key wouldn't have been my first choice either (it was the easiest
though). I'm not sure the best way to change. I suppose one could allocate
3 and 4 character (or longer) namespace keys and just chose the appropriate
one... I would actually pick ogcapi (matching the api signature) as a
namespace if I had my choice.
