Thanks for writing this up Robin.

So if I understand correctly, some of the possible issues with LRest  
include

- the potential need for using a different protocol that isn't widely  
used (Bayeux Comet protocol),

- use of a library to mask XMLHttpRequest details (is there open  
source here?),

- some more slightly complex and careful coding required, potential  
quality risk

- the need to create a URI scheme, probably opaque, and

- a performance cost of URI resolution.

- JSON definitions (an issue anyway, either approach?)

The benefit is the potential so support both widget and web cases and  
allow pluggable authorization, though we still need to work through  
the reality of that with an example.

Do you have a pointer to Stephen's proposal regarding database approach?

Thanks

regards, Frederick
