It would be nice if the author/server *could* provide a pointer to those 
SOAPs (man, two levels of indirection) as a service.  This would imply 
the SOAP-creation agent would send some sort of notification to the 
original dociument's server, which could be ignored if the server doesn't 
want to support it.  

This is what I thought the HTTP method/response header LINK was all about 
way back when.
