I think this sounds good.

There is a bit of awkwardness coding around services that require 
complex formatting of request data (in terms of the OL Protocol/Format 
split), but I think additional formats (and protocols) make sense.

At some point, it seems like we should discuss hosting a lite (but 
fairly functional build) so people wouldn't complain about OL continuing 
to get bigger with every release.
