Agreed and well said. Nice URLs do not have to be RESTful, but RESTful URLs have to be nice. Personally, its just OK for me if the entire URL looks like:

maps.google.com/whatever-nice-text-describing-location?ll=lat,long

If the lat/long is missing, then ask Maps to do a search. If its present, then its just a "nice" URL. Not necessarily RESTful.

Edit: Formatting




> RESTful URLs have to be nice

Not by any meaningful definition of REST.
