Well, see, the problem is that it *is* quite broken.  Come on, at least
admit that the possibility exists.  Disregarding a constraint that
Roy Fielding and Dan Connolly say is key, loses you important
properties, and the Web services architecture doesn't include
enough additional constraints to recover those properties.  In
particular, visibility, which has been a requirement of *all* Internet
scale applications since the Internet began.
