I think we better NOT say "ubiquitous" here, because that makes it sounds 
like Web services offer a "uniform interface" (a la REST).  According to 
REST folks, one of the problems of WS is that they do NOT obey the uniform 
interface requirement.  Instead, each WS defines its own interfaces.

I think we can just drop the word "ubiquitous" and the above would be fine.
