Works for me.  Maybe "DIRTYPE.yml", with the extension optional?

Is this somehow then becoming part of the "ocean" spec?  I'm not sure=20
that it has to stay exactly like this forever.  If you're a rhizopod=20
connector, you're looking for DIRTYPE.yml and making sure that it=20
says the type is rhizopod.

This same file might last through all of the various manifestations of=20
the directory-based hub idea, but if it's missing, it could be=20
considered an indicator that the directory in question does not fit=20
the spec which tells you to look for it.

Here's a good one for you, when does "file my_hub/" start to return=20
  my_hub/: rhizopod database Version 5.6
instead of=20
  my_hub/: directory
