Likewise!

I like "Level 1" web service.  They are perfectly legitimate,
and good for some subset of use cases (Paul Prescod might
argue that this doesn't need to be a proper subset!).  Still,
ya gotta pay the SOAP tax if you want WS-Security ... ya gotta 
pay the WSDL tax if you want choreography, etc. etc. etc.

It's analogous to well-formed XML ... perfectly legal, but you
gotta pay the DTD/schema tax if you want constraints, defaults, validation,
data binding, types, etc. etc. etc.
