Subject: Re: what application is XMI good for?

Why HTTP for computer-computer interaction? Aside from a means of going
around firewalls?

Seems like a lot of overhead. And the application must still deal with
retries. I presume access rights would rely on HTTPS and would be all or
nothing? Not to mention transactional capabilities.
