+1 one of the few reasons I get pushback against REST in favor of still
using SOAP is because in SOAP you can encrypt the body without encrypting
the headers. This creates the choice of encrypting the body end-to-end
without encrypting the headers. You might argue that a well formed
architecture wouldn't get to that point, but there are already many
architectures that are.
