How about an XML datatype?

It would be good if SOAP had a way of "serializing" XML.

Fragments could be laid down in-place.   They would, of course, have to
be in the same encoding as the SOAP carrier, and the sender would have
to be careful to avoid ID conflicts, but those are tractable problems,
not particularly worse than ensuring that a particular number doesn't
exceed its min/max facets.  To send a whole XML document, or one with a
different encoding, you could always use a non-fragment HREF, such as to
a SOAP with attachments MIME-part.
