REST is not only for web services (ala SOAP but with REST way)) but it 
is actually important for web applications too. One can of course say 
that web service is a more general form web app, but we are talking here 
about suitability of REST principle for building complex web applications.

And with Aida is a proof that this is completely doable and and has a 
main advantage that an original web spirit is preserved even in most 
complex web apps.
