Julian -- I completely agree. I wrote "lightweight programming models" but I should have used your formulation. It's central to the success of the internet as a whole.

I remember bringing Fred Baker, the chair of the IETF, to the second open source summit, and asking him what advice he could give to the Open source community, and it was essentially what you said above: standardize as little as possible, just enough to ensure interoperability.
