Perhaps a definition of "RPC" would be helpful.  If you look at
Xmethods.net, they break Web services down into two types; document,
and RPC.  But even the document types are RPC, at least by my
definition, and the definition I understand Mike to be using.

The rule of thumb I've used is; if there is a method name in the SOAP
envelope, then it's RPC.  Because when SOAP is used with an application
protocol, the method comes from the protocol.
