[Qgis-developer] REST services

As you know rest services are generics, and the semantics of arcgis
server rest services responses must be known to parse them. The rest
plugin, as far as I see, are generics too. You can easily query an
arcgis service (i.e. rest/services/your_service/MapServer?f=pjson) and
you simply receive the json response, but then you aren't able to use
it to load the listed features in qgis.
The arcgis rest services also permit to request an image response. The
same as above, it doesn't follow any standard format, so the answer
(afaik) is no, you can't load arcgis rest services response (neither
vectors nor images) on Qgis.
Maybe others have experimented with it...
