I'd welcome a patch on this - that would be great.
It's worth noting that we're trying to keep the interfaces harmonized
across service types as much as possible - however I had a look at WCS
and WFS to see if there is anything similar and there isn't - so in
this case I think it's fine just to extend the WMS content metadata section.
I think it would be more in keeping with the rest of the library if it
was a dictionary at this level rather than another type of object - as
you can see here most things at the content metadata level are
Anyway a patch would be welcomed!
Also it would be good to work this into a test somewhere - if you have a
capabilities XML document that supports this we could use that as a
basis for testing.
