I saw your previous note but I have to apologize, I've been tied up
catching back up after taking vacation for a few weeks... some

You're right.. the "under-defined" is actually intentional until we
(as a community) have a much better idea of what the overall
requirements will be...

Just to make sure, did you see the HtmlForm and Parameters objects
defined in the AS Actions draft?  and 
You can use a UrlTemplate and HtmlForm together if necessary, and the
Parameters object has a "required" property.
What's not clearly defined yet, however, are non-HTML form inputs.
That'll be something we need to look at eventually.

We intentionally designed actions to be very openly extensible. It
would be very possible to bring the Google API discovery approach
together with this. Technically, it just a matter of embedding the
json into the action handler. I definitely encourage experimentation
in this area and would gladly help where I can.
