Hi Simon,

I'll buy into your view on REST, maybe a better fit is something like Web Sockets?  However, I can't agree with you in regards to tighter specs inside applications and looser between them.  Are you suggesting that (for example) a Java method that has a single String as it's input and output needs a full XSD or some other more formal spec?  I suspect you're indulging in a bit of hyperbole in that, flexibility between applications in what they can accept might simplify the world, but you know as well as anyone that not everything can be mapped to name value pairs or tuples and left at that?

I'm pretty sure I'm baffled by the above paragraph so this might not at all be relevant, but I will say that REST, and the Web itself pretty has loose specification between applications as its fundamental principle. The Verb/Resource model of REST is pretty much exactly the tuple pairs you seem to think cannot work.
