Okay, after discussing with other people on #geojson, we've established:
* KML has not seriously suffered due to lack of feature types.
* Feature types in existing implementations (for example, my
WFS translation of FeatureServer input from JSON) are just faked up
based on using the layer name, and have little to no actual meaning.
As a result:
* '@type' is something which can be delivered in GeoJDIL. If it is
available, it is expected to be a feature type. Users who ask how to
use featuretypes should be using geojdil and geojdil friendly parser.
I'm going to write this example into the specification.
