Discovery - 2.3 Redirection - Should use 302 or 307 redirect instead?

As it stands, it is returning JSON object. I do not see why it cannot be HTTP 302 or 307 temporary redirect. Is that not simpler?

Even if we do not do it and stick to JSON, we have to write a normative text. Currently, it only has examples right now.

    No that is not supported by SWD.

    If we did that the service would need to rewrite the query rather than being a static file, largely defeating the point of the redirect.

    Should it be normative text or reference SWD?
