Mark,

I'm sorry but I don't have a good understanding of what you mean by the "connector semantics of the Web services architecture."  Could you describe this for me or give me a pointer?  I'm afraid I may have missed this in all the emails.

Regards,

Eric

Eirc, I just wanted to respond to one point, before returning to (wired) email range on Wednesday...

Re "the truth seems to be clearly in the middle", it may be (though I don't believe it is), but that doesn't mean the right architecture is.

To contrast the single most obvious architectural difference between OMA-style architectures and REST, would you say that the connector semantics of the Web services architecture will be generic to each Web service, or specific?

The point of that question is just to demonstrate that there is no middle ground with some (most even) architectural constraints.
