I've seen it but didn't have the time yet to read the lastest draft.

Yeah. It's very similar but I don't like the notion of "Action Handlers" at all.. reminds me way too much to how SOAP was done.

Yup.. this stuff wasn't invented in the Activity Streams community but is currently being worked on in the context of Schema.org. We have been discussing this stuff before and are actually in contact with Sam Goto who has been working on this for Google. I hope we find a way to align the two approaches, that's why I wrote that document explaining how Hydra could be integrated into Schema.org [1] a while ago.
