No, not at all.

The point I'm trying to make is this. SOAP provided a "starting point" for
the current work of the XP WG on a standard for a unipart protocol. The
union of SOAP with Attachments and other B2B-oriented protocols based on
MIME multipart, such as RosettaNet, ebXML, and BizTalk, could serve as the
"starting point" for an Activity/WG that would work on a multipart standard.
The end result would be two standards, with one (unipart), nested inside the
other (multipart). The multipart standard would depend on the unipart, but
the unipart would not depend on the multipart.
