I'm merely speculating that getting clients properly written to avoid 
deadlock in this case is tricky:  it's not surprising that industrial 
strength implementations do this properly, especially at the HTTP Layer, 
but in the case of SOAP, that has to go all the way up to a properly 
threaded client application.  I'm not sure we want to put that burden on 
the many SOAP clients that will be quite simple.

I too am unsure of why large POST & large response would be considered
harmful, unusual or strange.
