I would just like to point out that SOAP doesn't have an Object Model. But
coming to SOAP/Web Services from MOF is a Good Thing, IMHO.

Barbara, can you explain some more please? Do you mean that SOAP based
systems would take part in the MDA approach and as such can be described
by an XMI serialization? Or do you mean that you intend to take the SOAP
'type system' and define its expression in XMI? Or do you mean that you
intend to take XMI and define its serialization in SOAP encoding? Can you
post the text of the issue that you plan to open?

Lots of questions, but would appreciate the answers, since I've a keen
interest in using XMI encoding in SOAP messages.
