Any kind of way you slice it you're doing serialization. Either Erlang's RPC does term_to_binary or you do it. Makes very little difference. At least with HTTP/2 or something similar, you can carefully manage what gets called. Personally I would be very worried about exposing the capability of calling any erlang function in my application from across the world.
HTTP/2 or Thrift would honestly be my only choices. HTTP/2 is easier.
