Using external wire definition is not something that makes You
'dependant' but instead giving ability to use others work for
cross-language projects. There was already thread about 'common' wire
format but it dies silently so maybe give it another try? Why not to
settle simple common format for RPC? At least we may ask googlers to
judge us :)
From my point of view Yours format is not ideal since it lacks
asynchronous calls (and hypothetical ability for bidirectional calls).
Most simple is  but it has non-obvious Error message and lacks field

When I'll find suitable and compatible with someones project wire format :)
