Be careful - to some all of the splitting we've done has really WS*/SOAP.
Personally I dislike that SOAP has so many 'parts'.  I didn't see the 
point
of WSA (which is so small) being split into 3.  I just got thru listening
to an analyst complain about how we messed up WS* because its so 
complicated
and this proliferation of specs did not help.
