I agree that the version of this module that is distributed with the MapGuide web tier should not have a direct dependency on FDO; access should through the feature service.  However, I also want to keep this code as flexible as possible.
For instance, I would eventually like to see a version that doesn't require a full MapGuide webserverextensions install for a light-weight IIS/Apache module (or maybe something lighter) on a dedicated REST server.
I would also eventually like to see a version that allows direct RESTful access to HTTP and FDO data sources without the complexity and management overhead of a full MapGuide Server install.  Something similar to FeatureServer.org.  This would enable quick-win data serving for organisations that just want to use something like a Google Maps front end.
