A really excellent analysis of the situation, and an even better 
critique of the proposed standard.

This was particularly cogent:

> The scope claims that the document identifies resources and a way to 
> use "structured URLs" to exchange those resources between clients and 
> services. If that were true, I would expect
>     (1) a list of resources at least as an example, and
>     (2) an example of the structure and structuring principles of
>         the URLs. 

A lot more precise than my reaction "it just isn't very RESTful."
