Also, the WS-I Basic Profile disallows the use of SOAP Encoding.

  Is RPC/Encoded form of SOAP is vanishing out and Doc/Literal form of SOAP is going to be more popular in the future?

  Have a look at the following facts:

  a..  Some of toolkit (like .NET) use Doc/Literal by default 
  a.. SOAP 1.2 specification (recently announced as standard by W3C) makes support for SOAP encoding optional (that is, a toolkit can claim SOAP 1.2 compliance without supporting     SOAP encoding) 
  a..  W3C Web Service Description Working Group chose to drop support for encoding from their latest working draft of the WSDL 1.2 specification.

  thanks,
