A submission (NOTE) is not a standard, or a recommendation (what the
W3C produces). XML Protocol is an effort to recommend an XML
Messaging convention that is based on SOAP.

In other words, SOAP was designed by a few people to satisfy their
needs. XMLP is an effort to take that work and make sure that it
satisfies the requirements of the greater community (represented by
W3C Members, as well as those who choose to participate on this

Personally, I see XMLP as the continued development of SOAP; sort of
SOAP 2.0. Others may feel differently...
