> Now, is there benefit to having a 'standard' encoding style?

Yes there is.  If the language supports introspection (Python,
Smalltalk, Lisp, Java, etc.), then a standard encoding lets me intercept
any function call and remote it without having to go through the
overhead of wsdl, schema, or whatever.

Standard encoding is VERY important for cross-language cross-host
scripting, at least.
