SOAP 1.2, the spec, is already a fine citizen.  People's misuse of it is
what is harmful.  I don't expect that use to change much (if at all)
because we support GET.

You obviously have a very narrow view of the descriptive capabilities
of RDF.  "Description" is good for more than interfaces, it's good
for describing all sorts of relationships, such as those between
producers, suppliers, retailers, resellers, products, component parts,
etc..  Everything, basically.
