You mean, other that time? :)

The things I think are really missing right now for the CSS validator 
(which is the only one in production with a SOAP interface), and by 
extension the things that will be necessary for the others:

* human readable documentation of the "API", should at least give basic 
instructions on how to create a query (i.e list parameters and values) 
and what to expect as a response (i.e document the format, without 
necessarily document the whole schema at length, the machine-readable 
version(s) will do that)

* a WSDL for the service. We have one based on the current WD of wsdl2 
(attached, validator_w2.wsdl), but given how most tools still mostly 
grok version 1.1, we {also/at least} need one written with that format. 
I recall Yves asked for help on this but I don't think it has been done 
yet, so I've given it a try today (attached, validator_w11.wsdl): it's 
well formed, validates etc, but I haven't found a tool able to parse 
and use it yet (the otherwise rather convenient oxygen does not seem to 
understand the soap1.2 binding, unfortunately).
