I can control what I write and publish from Fox and FP
(although I won't use FP even with a gun to my head).
I can't control a centralized library of references
who's owners claim they won't change the outcomes
of their technologies (no human intervention) but
recent events prove they will. Type in "go to hell"
in the search engine and see where it points now.
The point is simple: sources have to be vetted.
A lot of the language in the contracts that have
logie requirements are based on the use of provable
and testable procedures to do that plus the procedures
for how to report discovered errors. Eg, if it can
be gamed, a means to detect it and report is must
be guaranteed and if it cannot be guaranteed, the
reliability numbers for that source are lowered
accordingly. Purchase by reliability numbers.
Google and XML alone are not up to the requirements
of web services. It's misleading to publish articles
claiming they are. Someone has to work harder to
make web services or REST be up to that task; therefore,
Just Can't Get No Rest.

I don't know what point you're trying to make so I'll just drop out.
I'll just say that it is a simple error of fact to claim that it is
easier to game Google than to write an RPC that games a UDDI repository.
Fire up Visual Foxpro and FrontPage and try it.
