    * there needs to be documentation on how to use the webservice, and
      what it does.  (In the context of non-free programs, this is an
      important point.  For example, consider a software system with a
      client-server architecture where there is no documentation on how
      to write an alternative client that will work with the same server.
      Such stuff does not qualify as "webservices", and it's in fact very
      bad, because that lack of documentation can prevent replacing
      non-Free software with free alternatives on a machine-by-machine

I don't think we want to tell people that the rules are more
permissive if they use an undocumented protocol.

    Will one of the lawyers of the FSF be able to take the time to review

We could arrange for this when it's actually needed.  It won't be a
high priority task until DotGNU is ready for actual use in web
services.  How close is that?
