Interoperability at scale is a red herring. There are vast systems 
that interoperate that don't use REST.

A large part of the trend we see is toward very loosely coupled/typed 
systems and robustness in the face of evolution.... kind of the same 
thing that increasingly pushes us toward scripting languages vs. 
assembler. REST plays well here which is a large part of it's value.

Sure, but we haven't seen anything in REST that would truly reduce the 
number of holes.
