Thanks for that link, it's definitely interesting. I'd guess from reading the
about the Dexter framework that HTTP/REST was a classic "disruptive

"A disruptive innovation is a technologically simple innovation in the form of
a product, service, or business model that takes root in a tier of the market
that is unattractive to the established leaders in an industry. Very often this
occurs at the low end of a market -- that is how Toyota attacked General
Motors, for example. Or it takes root by providing a simple and inexpensive
product that enables a new population of customers to begin participating in a
new application in the market -- as was the case with personal computers"
