I do believe this works, but I'm not convinced it is more elegant that
having one name for rendering views and one name for rendering
documents. For one thing, it doesn't take advantage of the
[httpd_design_handlers] extension point, and for another, it's just
plain long!

Not totally against it, but to me it's like making an origami
paper-crane, and then adding an elephant leg to it.
