Agreed.  Actually, I think it may be viewed as a solution to interleaved 
streams, in which more than one stream makes progress at a time, perhaps 
in a manner that's correlated at the application level (e.g. television 
frames with metadata about each interleaved.)  I've always been a bit 
nervous that SOAP isn't well engineered to facilitate this.  I think it 
basically didn't make the 80/20 cut.  I'm very much on the fence whether 
it's a good requrirement to adopt now, as I suspect that doing it only at 
the attachment level begs a lot of questions about the higher level 
abstraction supported (which is really your point, I think.) Thanks.
