The challenge for the RESTful crowd is to create a well-thought out transport alternative to SOAP. HTTP is the basis for that transport, but it’s not enough. The place to start is with service description and data binding so that RESTful Web services can enjoy the same kind of discovery that possible with SOAP.
I couldn’t disagree more — I’d much rather have the SOAP crowd drop WSDL and the data-binding crap instead of the REST folks adopting it.
