and wouldn't it be ideal if most applications took this approach and
accepted incoming OpenURL? So many of the link resolution problems seem be
when vendors change their interface and url structure breaking inbound
requests until the link resolvers can get up to speed and adjust their
parsers. Many of these same vendors create outbound OpenURL so it doesn't
seem to be stretch to me that they could program for incoming.
