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 
innovation".  A recent discussion is at http://www.inc.com/search/23854-
"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"
