Make it simple and the REST will follow.

makes a few interesting points about the implementation of MovableType's BackTrack functionality
. I have yet to decide if I agree with him or not, so I did some digging around on the REST model (here
), which the authors of MovableType (Ben
) cite as their implementation model.
Ben responded to the comments made, so be sure to check that out when you head over to injektilo. His case is a simple one, and well reasoned, and more importantly, well intended. For a blog technology, where somewhat average folks with average technical abilities will be implementing this, simple is good. In all cases, simple = better uptake (eg, HTML).
