I was looking at the survey of XML protocol techniques at
http://www.w3.org/2000/03/29-XML-protocol-matrix.
I think it would be relevant to include the HTTP Messaging
incorporated into xmlCIM, the XML encoding of 
the Common Information Model (CIM), being developed
by Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) as part
of the Web Based Enterprise Management (WBEM)
initiative.
http://www.dmtf.org/spec/wbem.html

Microsoft has incorporated CIM into its implementation 
of Windows Management Instrumentation, and I'm sure 
it would be easy to use SOAP instead of the xmlCIM 
<message> elements to carry CIM declarations.  I don't 
 know  whether a standard way to do this will emerge, and
how CIM and WBEM might eventually support a standard 
XML protocol.

CIM is also related to Directory Enabled Networking and 
LDAP, so their experiences interacting with directory services 
may also be of interest to W3C.
