Duh! I deliberately chose not to put Dr. Fieldings dissertation on the
reading list because of its length, but OBVIOUSLY that new TAG Web
Architecture document belongs on our reading list! 

So by all means, REST or no REST, please consider all of
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-webarch-20020830 as required reading. Not that
this draft is gospel to us, but something that we have to align with or push
back on, and definitely not ignore. [2] is of course the definitive
treatment of REST, and some think it is the most readable computer science
dissertation ever :-)

Thanks David, and sorry for proposing REST reading materials for you!
