true enough this is a problem to be solved today, because of constraints of todays architecture, not because its a 'requirement'. Focusing on the use case of application integration is a red herring, ( as MB stated re the power of a generic interface ) negotiating Objects in OO, documents in XML, in a world of web services and SOA is the 'real' problem. 

The (O)object in SOAP is less meaningful, then perhaps originally conceived, especially in the light of evolutionary computing that will become much more prevalent with ever increasing hardware computing speeds;<dramatic_statement>yes gentlemen code generating code.</dramatic_statement>

+1 to coarse grained business services being composed as per real time specification, to achieve 
business goals.
