Yes, one concrete requirement in my book would be a syntax for calling
SOAP services from XSLT. The document() function is entirely URL based.
But I don't expect this requirement to be met anytime soon, because SOAP
is seen as a protocol for doing updates and many XSLT authors are keen
to prevent it being expanded into a general purpose language.
