Thanks, Tim.

Actually the same provider can explicitly declare that it supports more
than one output model, so you don't need to have separate access points.

Anyway, the most important thing is that clients/networks can create as
many response structures as necessary if they want to work with smaller
pieces of the same big schema. So I don't think we will lose so much if we
remove the "partial" parameter.

Best Regards,
