Currently REST can get data in two ways: using MapGuide feature service
(in same way as standard web extension) or using http to fetch data.
To me, idea of being able to directly access data using FDO looks useful
I am curious, why you think that would be a problem ?

>From what I can see I think the public face of the extension is very 
promising. I am just curious about how it all maps to resources and
APIs under the hood, but I guess I can wait a few weeks to get a peek at

that. I don't want to see FDO dependencies in the web-tier for example,
would be  a serious implementation problem IMO.
