In that entry, I wondered about the value added by an API, over just having permanent links. Today I thought, there would be a lot of value if such an API also exposed the data being extracted by the FamilySearch Indexing project, such as field names in any given image, and values for each of the fields. Search functions via the API which searched over those fields along with other meta data (time period, geographical location, etc.) could be very useful indeed.
