  Fits the 80%/20% rule perfectly. Less than 5 pages and easy to implement
reliably. For the people in that 80% pool it's simply the best solution.
The only problem is being able to cache calls without side-effects, but
it's a scaling issue, and that minimal addition could probably be
standardized on top the core (like HTTP/1.1 vs HTTP/1.0 initial goal).
