It's interesting to ask what's left of RPC when we do this.  We've already 
separated out request/response as an exchange pattern, so we've got that. 
By leaving out the data model, we're eliminating any fixed notion of how 
arguments are results are modeled, except to say that they are XML.  The 
only thing I can think of that's left is to indicate that the QName of the 
immediate child of <Body> is the key to dispatching the service to be 
performed (keep in mind that our default rules for handling bodies are now 
looser than that.)  What else would be left of RPC in your proposal (I'm 
neither endorsing nor disagreeing with it, just asking for clarification). 
 Thanks.
