No.  The reason REST works is that you have a limited set of verbs (GET, 
PUT, POST, DELETE) operating on a huge set of nouns - the URIs.

The problem here isn't finding update capabilities - POST already 
provides that.  The problem is addressing resources at a granularity 
level that's more convenient for doing updates than a complete document.
