Can you back those claims up, or talk more about them? As they
exist already, why would having URL queries increase costs?


I have been working like a fiend on an xml.com article. I'll give
preview copies to anyone who agrees to report typos or errors they

Cool, I'm looking forward to reading it. [The wsdl is 404ing by the
way; will you mail out when it's up?]

But what's the fuss? It's not that hard for Google to return schema
backed results from the URI query as Dare outlined [I quite like
the terse tags they use; it makes the XML easier to read]. Anyone
that wants ask by SOAP can have it, anyone that wants ask by URL
can have it. It's hardly exclusive. It just seems like a special
case of device transformation.
