Known weaknesses of DODS:
- In many cases the data types defined by the DAP
do not provide the flexibility needed by some APIs (e.g., DODS lacks
intra dataset pointers).
- The current model of translation may not prove
powerful enough as new APIs are added to the system.
- The servers do not support the data locator
well. Without better support it is hard to imagine the locator living
up to its potential.
