Not sure if this is relevant to 'web description formats', but similar to
tarawa is a system I built called Xang that maps http resources and requests
to objects where the mapping is described by XML and methods can be
implemented as javascript within that XML document (which can then invoke
methods on other objects, etc.) http://xml.apache.org/xang/overview.html

It's a bit rusty and old, and I haven't tried an install with newer servlet
containers, but there is some interesting stuff in there.
