Also I thought REST was about not shipping app. code (like applets) to the browser, just document formats.
Now I know programs are just data, but it seems you are taking the complexity out of the server architecture and just moving the whole lot into a massively complex document.
I used to think that web applications should be implemented using static HTML and keeping all functionality on the server, so I can understand how you feel. It's quite a mindshift.
And please don't get me wrong: I will never say that it's easy to make such a seperation. It's in some way comparable to OO design; deciding which party does what.
