If you look at section 2 of the SOAP spec, it talks of the SOAP
application receiving a SOAP message, the SOAP application being the
ultimate destination of the message, the SOAP application forwarding
the message, etc.  That is the sense in which the SOAP application
is the behavioral part of the SOAP processor.  Indeed, it is also the
glue that controls how the handlers for modules get applied.
