MS Ignoring developer demand for REST tools?

Microsoft's Mike Champion - MS Ignoring developer demand for REST tools?:

"Plain ol' XML over HTTP works just fine, and WS-* is overkill, in situations where:

* information is public and encryption/authentication are unnecessary; * all communication visible to the service consumer is done over one protocol, HTTP; * nothing terribly bad happens if a message is lost or duplicated; * and there are few demands for multi-part transaction management beyond what can be implemented with HTTP sessions or cookies."
