Thanks for sharing, this is really interesting.

However, as far as I understand REST (applied to HTTP), the major pros  
of "transferring states" instead of procedure calls is that :
- GET is safe,
- PUT and DELETE are idempotent.

Those 2 properties have really important impacts on scaling.

Of course you can PATCH but this is not RESTful... and then, you don't  
get benefits from Fielding's architecture...

Aurélien
