You may specify an optional prefix for standard facets. For example ?facet[0]=standard:dok will only return facets beginning with dok (which correspond to Depth of Knowledge values).

Note: You may only specify one prefix in your entire query. If you specify more, only the first prefix specified will take effect. For example:  (?facet[0]=standard:dok&facet[1]=standard:bt)
