It seems to me highly debatable that the "vast majority of the Web uses
uniform interface semantics", at least as I understand the term.  I like
the relative sizes just fine.

Two comments ...

Right, but then the interface is no longer declared with XML (gasp! 8-),
it's declared with HTTP, so "XML Interface Services" isn't an accurate
description of what's going on.  Perhaps that's not such a big deal, but
it could be a point of confusion.  Maybe a footnote would help.
