Hi Bill,

what do you mean with "something"? Is this "something" ignored, or is it
an earlyier (nearer at the host) path segment name? as
example for the second? Normally the value of @PathParam has another
meaning (a name of a variable and not a fix name of a path segment), so
developers could get confusing, because of this meaning change.
