[occi-wg] Syntax of OCCI API

Definitely agree with this approach.

For (A), I think it's actually nouns (e.g. servers), verbs (e.g. start) and
noun attributes (e.g. memory). All of these can be consistent between
different bindings.

For (B), as per my many posts I'm very keen that the text and JSON versions
are in extremely simple format - just a flat list of key-value attributes
for each noun. I'm much less concerned about the XML syntax.
