I would think that a consumer could write() an object that was a 
representation of the Infoset defining a getStockQuote SOAP message, and 
then the service could take() the message, then write() an object 
representing the Infoset of the response.  You'd need a way of 
"serializing" the Infoset as a Javaspaces object (that's sortof a mind- 
bending concept) but I don't see why it couldn't be done.

Uhh, because there are a lot of protocols out there, many of which do the 
job they were designed to do better than HTTP can?
