After 4 years working with Microservices + HTTP (REST + JSON) APIs, I completely agree on your post. I have used most of my dev time, just fixing inter service communication, fixing HTTP clients (error handling, headers name, query params, etc..) instead of working on actual business value. Strict APIs contract are required in the Microservices world; open/optional APIs just work on personal-weekend-hobby projects.
