I'm not trying to enforce one or the other to end
the fracas, Mike. The fracas is irrelevant except
insofar as it is beginning to rob the TAG of credibility
to the W3C membership that is fielding SOAP systems.
What I'm saying is precisely this: web services, SOAP,
etc., can go right on doing what they are doing and
RESTies can go on RESTing. As Fyrstyk said, use each
where applicable. Choice, right?
There is no "full potential of the Web" until it
is retired. When that happens, if we keep to
sound principles, XML will be there to help us
get the information onto the new system unless
one side or the other manages to introduce system
architecture dependencies to a system independent

But the CLEARLY WRONG answer, either for 19th century physics or for
the 21st century internet, would be to try to enforce one
view or the other in the name of stopping a contentious fracas.
We obviously can't stop work until we understand the "transcendent
thingie" with both SOAP and RPC aspects, and we can't afford to
answer the question by fiat. Figuring out when one works better
than the other seems like the right approach to me ... while searching
for transcendent thingie enlightenment in our spare time.
