I would like to second this-in ICE (XML messaging over HTTP, etc) people 
use SSL, PKI, etc., (nearly) transparently to ICE if they want to secure 
link-level communications, validate servers via x.509, etc. There's no 
need to duplicate these standards in higher levels so long as the layers 
are properly tied together.

And for lightweight app's you can run ICE over raw sockets...

Since ICE implementors  has done this for a few years successfully I 
assume SOAP can/will do the same.
