GData: The future of CRUD?

GData is basically about list management (RESTful as opposed to Soap and WSDL, however); as many look to Google at the moment for inspiration, due to their innovation, could this be the future of CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) for distributed services (a.k.a web services)?

In the Google document they also talk about versioning as well as managing optimistic locking, which I find very interesting as this is a prickly problem for services regardless of whether they use REST or Soap and WSDL.

This first came to my attention via Dons post on the subject.
