REST is too important to leave to chance, especially if we want to see an
eco-system of open source and other reference implementations and POCs. I
suggest a layered approach. Define the abstraction in the main spec. The REST
implementation/binding could be defined in an appendix (slight preference) or
separate document. I suspect there won’t be a rush to define WS bindings. :-)
Just one man’s opinion.

Attached a very preliminary draft of a REST-like interface. Some questions to
- Should we mandate a specific interface approach (e.g. WS, REST) or
shall we just abstractly define necessary operations and then suggest how these
can be implemented in REST or WS in appendices?
- Should this interface text be on the main spec or in a separate
I haven't added this to the document folder yet, waiting for discussion first.
With something like this in place, we can build a straightforward REST-like
interface for quick POCs and demos on top of our SAF implementation (which is
currently WS-based and a little bit hard to use :-))
