That's a bit fast on the draw, Leigh. Perhaps some review of
that Herzog thesis is in order.
Are you sure REST doesn't fall apart in other models of hypermedia frameworks,
or sure we need those frameworks? Distributed hypermedia
starts with Engelbart, not Fielding. From those requirements to the contrast
of the Dexter Model to the WWW, one should be aware that there
really are alternatives. IOW, there might be new requirements or
more efficient answers. We don't know and no one has proved
the case because unless I miss my guess, there are multiple
cases here and "the Web" may not be the only or best solution
for building applications on the Internet.

This would be fine, IFF, the requirements had changed. Personally I don't see
anything in web services that requires new technologies, or fundamental reworkings
other than the possibility to make someone a lot of money.
