Cool.  I was perfectly happy to proceed down this path with the WG, as
long as there was general recognition that this was progress (which
there wasn't at the time, though I think many would now agree with you).
If you recall a requirement that I championed;

 o AR023.7.1 defines or identifies a base interface that all Web
   services can implement, that permits communication without a priori
   knowledge of the service.

But whatever the WG would have come up with for that, it would have
been a simple matter to map it to the uniform interface.
