No, though if the group wants the change, it's OK with me.  I'm just not 
entirely comfortable with Jacek's choice of a, b, or c, so I offered a 
formulation that made somewhat more sense to me.  Thank you.

Are you pointing out a possible replacement for the current abtract?

SOAP Version 1.2 is a lightweight protocol intended for exchange of 
information in a decentralized, distributed environment. It defines an
extensible messaging framework that contains a message construct based on 
technologies that can be exchanged over a variety of underlying protocols.
