Just some comments regarding rest and neo.

twitter at mdeiters' rest api is really nice.

/node/{id}
node/{id}/relations etc.

you might also have 

/node/{id}/properties/{property} , for instance, in cases where the value was a large amount of text, you may just want that particular piece of data.  Also, in communicating the node id back and forth, it probably should be a URL, not just the id. 

In other words, in Rest word node[1] becomes http://host/node/1 .  That's interesting because it's distinguishable from http://other/node/1.

I'm sure the ThoughtWorks Dr. will have it done this way, some kind of paging, similar to Atom, is necessary at /nodes, and finally maybe a gremlin'ish URL schema to create traverser with a URL.
