Parameters are Link Relation Specific

I used to view REST APIs to be constituted by media types, extensions, link relations and parameters (query-, form- and URI template parameters). Reading through Roy's checklist again today I realized that he suggests a superior approach: By making the parameters link relation specific the problem that parameters are usually not bound to a name space goes away and there is one less class of design artifacts.
