Can SOAP serialize an arbitrary Java object without loss of data?  What are
the constraints, if any?  A study of Section Five would of course yield the
answer, but I'm hoping that it already exists in a pre-packaged form.

Wouldn't it be clearer to put section five into an own document, or 
to give it at least a name like SSF (SOAP Serialization Format) that 
can be simpler referenced than "SOAP section five"? (Oops, what does 
SSF actually mean - SOAP Serialization Format or SOAP Section five? :-)

My problem is: When I mention SOAP, I first need to explain 
that I do not mean HTTP+XML based RPC but the serialization format 
mentioned in section five of the spec...
