Since DAML-S 0.5, I've been trying to wrap my ahead around it using the
examples, without any luck.  It would help me to see some examples of
*network messages* (aka "on the wire") that would be used to implement
those examples.

In DAML-S 0.7, I just found a paper[1] on how to describe Web services
using both DAML-S and WSDL.  Since I know how WSDL maps to messages -
operations in a WSDL document become the semantics of the messages that
are sent - I can for the first time see what a DAML-S message looks
like.  But, as with Web services, I don't like what I see, because it's
not using a uniform interface[2], like the Web does.

So is this an issue with DAML-S itself, or just with this DAML-S/WSDL
integration?  Can DAML-S work with a uniform interface (GET, POST, PUT,
