I agree with this comment that it would be a good idea to draw
attention here to the possibilities of optionally restricted
levels of detail from the /tables endpoint.  However, I think
the relevant reference is [sec 3.3 of] VOSI 1.1 (GWS-WG, 2017),
and not VODataService 1.1 (Plante and Stébé et al., 2010)
(unless I've misunderstood Grégory's point?)
