An idea for a "Service Oriented Architecture" world

I was reading the Sun Grid overview and the thought struck me:

How come I can't use the Sun Grid as a regular web service?

What I mean is, if I can make Google searches via web services (SOAP) and check Amazon book prices (REST), then how come I can't use a computer program to do this:

  1. Sign in with a token
  2. Upload my data
  3. Upload a job to run
  4. Run the job
  5. Check the status until ready
  6. Download my results

Come on Sun - remember "the network is the computer" right?
