So now we are back to using media types to designate everything?

If this is a REST principle, then REST has gotten this one wrong and the W3C
(with their emphasis on URIs for unique names) have got this one right. That
simple <baseType>/<subType> pattern is going to become an awfully crowded
namespace if web services folks yield on this one. And boy are the IANA
folks going to be busy registering media types.

What's wrong with URIs?
