Interesting.  I thought that if you knocked out an independant claim 
(such as #1 in the excerpt you quoted), then the dependant claims (such 
as #4) are automatically invalidated.

It seems pretty obvious that OSF DCE, among others, are prior art that 
invalidate #1; it had several API's that were "transparently remote."
