If "you're doing anything over the Internet with people that you haven't
previously met and may not trust" you are probably a small child or a teenager and your
parents should take away your privileges on the family account.
Seriously: anyone who is thinking about this stuff without
really understanding business contracts for services should
step back and think some more. Otherwise, one risks
becoming the Scarecrow singing "If I only had a brain...."
I'm curious. Do you really believe that many services need
to scale to the number of potential Internet users? That
won't happen except possibly for very trivial services
and even then, it isn't likely. People are confusing
surfing web pages with accessing functions. Not the same
thing at all.

Any task that can be coordinated with RPC, can be coordinated with
REST in a manner more suitable for Internet scale distribution. If
you're doing anything over the Internet with people that you haven't
previously met and may not trust, RPC is the wrong technology.
