Mark, thanks for the respectful pushback, but that's not true.
Much of the XML-RPC spec is devoted to explaining how to serialize values,
structs and lists.
If you were going to marshall your calls in a different format, you'd still
have to define and explain how serialization works.
This has long been overlooked in the REST-is-Better discussions. (Although I
have pointed it out before.)
