[Standards-JIG] Call for Experience: JEP-0030 (Service Discovery)

If a disco#info were made on the node 'music' in example 7, I suppose the
'type' attribute of the <identity/> element would probably have the value
'directory'? (i.e. 'music' is a directory of directories.)

The 'directory' value of 'type' will probably be used whenever the structure
being discovered has more than one level (i.e. more than just a list), and
whenever the child items are of different types.

IMHO this value of 'type' is general enough to merit inclusion in an example
(perhaps in Example 14 instead of the automation command-list). It could
also be mentioned inside the parenthesises in the second paragraph of
section 4.2 "The item's identity":
"...user directory vs. chatroom directory vs. directory directory, etc.)."
