My team maintains a customized Bugzilla version for IBM internal use.

I'm curious to know why you guys are developing a REST API for Bugzilla 5.0.
The current XML-RPC interface has known downsides? I know that RESTful 
using vanilla HTTP have some advantages, such as caching and versioning 
out of
the box, but I wonder if there are additional motivations.
