Johan is correct.  As Henrik mentioned, the RDF Protocol binding for
TCP that I described would work equally well for SOAP.

If you're thinking of some kind of "XML wrapper" that holds message
and routing information about the content of the message (which may be
RDF, XHTML, or RPCs), then XML Protocol's "envelope" is the current
effort towards a generic XML protocol.
