I completely agree -- I'm trying to be as humble about this as I can
(which may not be saying much. :-).
Just to be clear: I'm pushing this as the "simplest possible useful"
way of integrating REST with XHTML -- and looking for feedback
whether that is true. :-) Whether that is "optimal" (or "unique") is
a whole 'nother question, which I don't really want to tackle...
