What I'm seeing so far is that the API is for a site-wide collection of questions.
Can someone use the API to decorate a website's products or articles with questions and answers (on a per-item basis) to bring the same meaningful, structured conversation to each product?
The main difference being, that a question regarding one product wouldn't apply to other products.
On a mattress retailer website, they list various products for sale such as two mattresses, and one pillow. The site sells a total of three products (for discussion purposes). There are a total of three product details web pages on the site, and a main product listings page with three links.
On each of the three product pages, there is a "Questions and Answers about this product" section. There, on the pillow page for instance, you can see that someone has previously asked a question: "Are they feather pillows?", and it has various comments and answers. You see this and up-vote the question because you were wondering the same thing.
Next, you navigate back to the products list and go to one of the mattress product pages. Under that page, there is a "Questions and Answers about this product" section, that has no questions asked yet, but instead a form to fill out to ask a new question. The question about the pillow is not visible here, because that question was not about this product.
Can the API support/implement this functionality in the website?
