Calling non-PI Web Services via AF

First, please bear with me here - I'm asking a question about something I know little about.




The Goal:  I would like to make non-PI, time series data returned by various web services available to ProcessBook.  Since ProcessBook cannot natively call a web service (at least not yet), I'm wondering if I can write a custom data reference to serve the purpose.  So...




The Questions:


1) Does this sound like a reasonable thing to do with a custom data reference?


2) If yes, do you know of anyone who may have already done this?


3) If no, can you provide guidance and/or examples regarding how to do this?
