[tdwg-tapir] Requesting available darwin core elements from data provider

Is there a way to request from a tapir data provider which optional elements
of the darwin core schema are actually implemented by the provider in
question. I mean, if I understood correctly only a small subset of the
Darwin Core are required
It would be nice to know what optional elments a given provider implements
before formulating a search request to that provider (for instance, whether
information defined in the IslandGroup element is available).

The metadata response does not provide this information, I think.

Thanks a lot.
