PART A

1. Evaluator:
         Håvard Tveite, UMB - havard.tveite at umb.no

2. Submission:
         GeoServices REST API Candidate Standard (12-054r1 - 12-062r1)

PART B

1. Requirement:
         General

2. Implementation Specification Section number:
         General

3. Criticality:
         Major

4. Comments/justifications for changes:

Introducing this comprehensive API, in its current form, as an OGC
standard would be very confusing to users, as the proposed API
deviates from existing OGC standards in several ways (as documented
in "GeoServices REST API - relationship with the OGC baseline
(12-062r1)").
If REST APIs are to be standardised by the OGC, they will have to
comply with current OGC standards.
