Check the archives of the SOAP list for a post-mortem of the meeting

The BOF was largely inconclusive. I missed the first half, but my take on
the event was that half the world disliked HTTP and an application protocol,
the other half disliked XML as an encoding scheme, with a small but real
amount of overlap between the two factions, leaving room for SOAP or a
committee-invented equivalent. I am not sure we need another
transport/framing protocol to complement HTTP and GIOP, yet some people
seemed interested in coming up with one. I am not sure we need another
encoding protocol to complement XML, CDR, NDR, XDR, and ASN.1 BER, yet some
people seemed interested in coming up with one of those too.
