We stumbled over the following, where SRW/SRU is explicitely
investigated among other search-retrieval protocols.
I thought it might be of interest to the members of this list to see
how others compare SRW/U to SQI, OpenSearch, Google Webservice, OAI-PMH.

Search Interface Protocols and Specifications Summary
There are several available interface specifications, protocols and APIs
for repository search and information retrieval. This document compares
key characteristics of these to inform selection or profiling of one or
more of these specifications for use within a CORDRA™ implementation or
within Federated CORDRA.
in connection with the Federated CORDRA project
CORDRA stands for Content Object Repository Discovery and
Registration/Resolution Architecture. It is a model of how to enable the
next step in the evolution of e-learning, namely, how to solve the
problem of finding and reusing learning content.
