That's a productive perspective.  It does assume the specs that 
are there (the baseline, I guess) are the ones we will work 
with for now.  That doesn't accommodate Paul's position on 
REST.  A URI-centric vs. API centric design doesn't seem 
to be an issue for WSIO (just guessing).  What happens 
if the W3C reconsiders and moves towards Paul's position?
That is the conflict.

See last paragraph.  The overlap will happen if a party 
decides on a different architecture.   We have a lot 
of discussion on REST, yet I have these documents in 
front of me for baseline and global web services.  I 
think we should look at these and try to understand 
these too.  My guess is that tools for this are about 
ready to ship, so they become immediately interesting.

I meant that only in the context of web services. Point taken, though.
