Just wanted to bring this up again - it got lost in the mix

I don't feel very strongly about it either way, but I do prefer:

  POST /storagedomains/1234/attachments HTTP/1.1

  <attachment><datacenter id="5678"/></attachment>

over:

  POST /storagedomains/1234/attachments HTTP/1.1

  <attachment><datacenter><id>"5678"</id></datacenter></attachment>

Cheers,
Mark.
