Indication of the way the wind is blowing

I find it somewhat amusing, but even more illuminating, that 2 very well developed "WS" projects (Axis2 and the Incubated CXF) are having a "spirited discussion" on which one is more RESTy. Sanjiva's post and Dan Diephouse's one both wish to show how "their" implementation is more ideally suited to real world usage, as well as being a more viable REST framework. Is there any better indication that REST is where it's at? If REST wasn't important, would they even care... and would we? Oh, and by the way, this is the exact reason why the ASF has and supports projects that, at first glance, appear to overlap or even compete. Cross pollination always helps evolution.
