Given that this would not be for "public consumption" (i.e., only targeted at the web site developed for the business) would that be a problem? The web developer and I would agree on the spec, and it would only change for a mutually agreed upon design change.

Thanks Dan. I like the SOAP web service idea. I've done projects

REST is much less strenuous than SOAP. At least in my experience, the
nastiest RESTful web services (e.g., Google Calendar) are still easier
to deal with than the friendliest SOAP ones.
