Missed the REST debates did we? 8-)

I won't get into detail here - check the Web Services Architecture WG
mailing list archives for that - but I'll just say that Web services
exist because many people were under the impression that the Web
couldn't be used to solve machine-to-machine integration problems.
They were mistaken.  Where that leaves us now is essentially with two
competing architectural styles.  The distinction I tried to make above
reflects those two styles.

Followups on that to www-ws-arch@w3.org please.

To Len; RDF in UDDI is a Good Thing, given that UDDI is being used, and
those using it could benefit from RDF.  However, I would have preferred
that UDDI never existed in the first place and that HTTP and http URIs
were used instead, ala;
