That's great. Can we standardize it?

Even better...why not combine the endpoint URI and the instance ID
somewhat like this:

http://www.manes.net/service?instance=instanceID

I have other ideas beyond that but I'll let that one sink in. If you do
that then voila you've made it easy for every instance to be an endpoint
and all you need is a WSDL for it. Which puts the ball back in WSDL's
court. You need a way to say that the return value of a method will be a
URI like that and declare the WSDL that goes with that
instance-endpoint.
