If content is output with XHTML and makes wise use of CSS, by definition is makes it ideal for screen shaping.

Whether it is ideal in terms of being a "coarse grained API" is another question (users don't like being flooded with information) - with a REST based API as you've described, there's alot more room to publish a fat API.

That said the advantage of using XHTML, with data clearly defined with id/class attributes, is the provider only needs to build one interface.
