> Currently I can use the JAX-RS server to detect the mediatype using the meta endpoint.
The problem I have with this is that I need to send the entire document to get all metadata.

> To detect the mediatype, only a few bytes are often necessary and so I'd like to only
send, say 8K or so, to the server and let it tell me the mediatype.
> In order to accomplish this, it would be good to modify the /meta endpoint to address
the individual fields that might be returned:
> /meta/mediatype
> /meta/author
> /meta/lastModified
> The parts currently following the path could be turned into a query parameter, which
I think is more appropriate anyways (also easier to manipulate with tools like jquery).
> If sufficient data is not available, I'd just return with a BAD_REQUEST.
> If this would be of interest to TIKA, I think I could possibly implement this.
