      Description

      When declaring a service, a URL is specified and cannot change, nor be assigned parameters.
      Let's say I have a service declared in "myplugin" with "service.html" as its internal URL, with an optional "page" parameter. When I open the page it's inserted in ("My Page"), I get the URL "http://my.site/fr/my-page.html".
      If I want to browse the second page, the URL becomes:

      • either "http://my.site/fr/my-page.html?page=2", and the service is not cacheable.
      • or "http://my.site/fr/_plugins/myplugin/template/service/page2.html", for instance (if "service/page*.html" is my matcher), which is a plugin URL.

      Even if the second case makes the service cacheable, there are several drawbacks as well:

      • it's not a page URL, so we have no breadcrumbs, no filters, etc.
      • the URL is horribly dirty and does not reflect the sitemap at all.

      I would like to be able to have an URL like "http://my.site/fr/my-page/page2.html", which is a clean URL, is perfectly cacheable, and reflects the physionomy of the sitemap.
      Of course, it's currently not possible, because this URL is part of the page URL space. Maybe defining a different URL space like "http://my.site/fr/my-page/_page2.html" could solve the problem?
