One of the key features of HTTP which help it scale at internet level
is ability to cache responses.
There is decent amount of caching facilities built into standard and
well understood by web infrastructure.
Because SOAP uses HTTP as one of the transport protocols, it can not
get benefit of any of these caching mechanisms.
If cacheability is to be provided, it needs to be built by application.

Was there any plan to build caching facilities at SOAP protocol level
which could be understood by SOAP processing agents?
