If you've got CORBA/RMI/DCOM clients and servers on both ends why would you want to take a detour via XML over HTTP (other than for firewall traversal). The generated XML would be about as illuminating (and as helpful for interoperation) as running a binary executable through a disassembler. I think this is a case of horses for courses ... both XML over HTTP and CORBA/RMI/DCOM have useful jobs to do, but I don't think either can make the other redundant.
