Some links in the {links} table may have restricted acces. Trying to access them gets a 403 error message.. #33

We could add a non-normative advice to include a column in the {links} endpoint named "readable" with values true|false. The values predict if the client will (using the current anon or authenticated identity) be allowed to use the link (eg download the data). This saves the clients the annoyance of trying and getting a 403 Permission Denied.
This issue has been raised By Pat Dowler in May. I (FB)don't know exactly how to write this change proposal. So I didn' create a pull request attached to this.

Good point.
But you cannot say that an authenticated endpoint is not readable (readable=false).
Something like access=open|restricted might do the job.
