You may not be able to "get" it from that section without reading all of
the context but think of it this way: HTTP is an "Remote Method
Invocation" model where every single object has the same
interface...i.e. not really an RPC at all. This is a big part of what
makes HTTP scale, because once you learn that one interface you can
develop tons of caches, firewalls and other optimizers which you cannot
do if people invent their own interfaces willy nilly.    (03)
