Description: Am contemplating using the GBIF API but am reluctant to do so at the moment because I am not certain of the stability of the response signature. In particular, why are the JSON keys and query parameters not using Darwin Core terms when these clearly should be. Including a version in the API path would boost my confidence because I'd see that you will probably have a newer version at some point with an expected period of grace for users who have designed applications using your a then older version of your API.
