I'm not objecting to anything other than the notion there is One True 
Way to do any of this.  REST has a place, SOAP/WSDL has a place, 
SOAP-RPC has a place (albeit mainly in well-managed enterprise 
environments).    I'm just a bit mystified by Mark's repeated queries 
for clarification on why WSA doesn't build on a REST and only REST 
foundation.  That's the issue that I *think* was originally  being 
asked in this thread, and I think is very thoroughly answered in the 
WSA Note and (extensively!) in the www-ws-arch archives.
