I can think through http://simonstl.com/ as either a noun or a verb
without difficulty, but I think the REST folks would prefer that I treat
it as a noun.

In either case, using http://simonstl.com/adjectives/red/ is kind of
stupid, don't you think?

I'm aware of the convention, but I have to confess that using it
repeatedly reduces me to helpless laughter. A 44-character penalty for
using an over-generalized specification is pretty ridiculous.  At least
namespaces provide an abbreviated form that's human-readable, if not
