That seems to implicitly assume that SOAP specific software isn't URI
software.  Perhaps that's the heart of the disagreement? So, I'll bite;
why can't SOAP software also be URI software?  Because one could
reasonably interpret webarch as saying that it *should be*, at least if
you want to benefit from the network effects of a global naming system,
yada yada yada ...

But if your answer would head back down that same rathole, then
nevermind; I'll have to wait for the motivating example, I guess.
