I agree that this is the right approach.

So back to my original comment, which was that using this approach,
"vanilla" SOA can't be said to use the "identify resources" constraint,
since one of the derived styles, "Mediated SOA", does not.

I don't want to dwell on this - if you disagree, I'll submit it is an
issue.  I just want to make sure REST is well represented (pun
intended 8-), and any comparisons are as accurate as possible.
