Improvement: Pagination best practices - Web Linking RFC-5988?

Hi all,


I would like to discuss the way pagination is implementation for list calls.

Maybe we can streamline this and move towards best practices? 


Web linking via HTTP headers is described in RFC-5988.

Why not take the GitHub v3 API as a fine example: https://developer.github.com/v3/guides/traversing-with-pagination/?


I am not saying that this should be implemented via headers, but it is always good to apply standards. This facilitates easier adoption and can bring along interesting future improvements for free (browsing support, app integration etc).


I would like to read what others think about this!


Happy hacking!

Jay
