The low energy example is a great reason why we wouldn't want a single
standard protocol. In the low energy case you want to move all the smarts
out of the handset and into the server, which requires a different protocol
to the one you'd use for a high power desktop application.

Forcing a handset to implement a protocol that is expressive enough for all
the possible uses on the desktop seems like a bad idea.
