Yes - you are right about REST, but what something more than that.  We
want to have is a REST interface together with something REST-like
that will work for browsers.

Additionally we would like to have other non REST actions in the same
controller.  This mixing will require some separation between the
method names and the object id (which is data).  This is why I propose
/cd/instance/5 for the retrieve action.
