Of course.  But many architectural styles are complete, in that
anything can be accomplished with them (with or without humans).
REST is complete.

Anyhow, talk is cheap.  Show me a problem that Web services claim to
solve that the Web doesn't have a solution for.  I'll give you C$100 for
each one you find, if you buy me a beer for each one you suggest that I
show does have a solution on the Web (i.e. respecting all of REST's
constraints).

Deal?
