Actually I'd say that SOAP support across other protocols could be set up
depending upon system capabilities. If your system supports an SMTP client,
I can see something like

<p:declare-step name="email">
     <p:input port="envelope-headers"/>
     <p:input port="payload"/>
     <!-- pipeline for processing -->
</p:declare-step>

<p:declare-step name="soap-envelope">
     <p:parameter name="to"/>
     <p:parameter name="from"/>
     <p:parameter name="cc"/>
     <p:parameter name="bcc"/>
     <p:xquery>
          <p:input port="query">
                 <p:document href="create-source-envelope.xq"/>
          </p:input>
     </p:xquery>
     <p:output port="envelope-headers"/>
</p:declare-step>
