I would rather see this as a result of better internet infrastructure
("Broadband to the people!") than new architechtures. It's still regular
client/server stuff 99% of the time and peer2peer isn't exactly new
(some even say it's history).

If I put up a Web-server at home that can serve XML. Would it fit?

I used to live in an area where all appartments had 10Mbit ethernet. The
distribution of video, mp3 and other binary stuff makes it almost
useless. How well does internet scale? Well, guess we will find out
sooner or later.
