Good news:

With help from Mitko Iliev from OpenLinkSW, who deployed a SOAP 1.1 endpoint 
at http://demo.openlinksw.com/sparql, I have successfully sent a remote SOAP 
requests and got some answers back.

Minor bad news:

I get back some bad XML (as captured directly on the link by tcpmon).  There 
is no XML escaping applied to the results which makes it not conform to the 
SPARQL XML Results schema.

XML or HTML content inside literals needs escaping (at the minimum, &lt;).

example: I get back:

    <binding name="z"><literal><a 
width="100" height="150" /></a></literal></binding>

aside from the lack of datatype :-) this should be XML text, not nested 
elements, to be valid with respect to the schema as the content of <literal> 
which is defined as text only, no nested elements (RELAXNG):

literal = element res:literal {
     datatypeAttr?, xmlLang?,
