Of course. However, SOAP is not constrained to HTTP. 

Think of it as an XML messaging framework, NOT
rpc-using-xml-over-http. The BEEP binding of SOAP is just as valid as
the HTTP one.

Just to reiterate, I'm less concerned with getting PROVREG to
consider SOAP as a solution, and more interested in getting a bit of
cross-fertilisation, as both groups are tackling the same problems in
many areas.
