Hmm.  Can you conceive of a case or implementation 
where SOAP message payloads might be XML wrapping 
SQL queries?  Offhand, that would seem to be something one 
might want to do without having to know that the 
consumer is a particular vendor's database.  We 
have to do that *sort* of thing using LU2.6(?) protocol 
here for NCIC and state CIBs.  

Wouldn't wrapped SQL be an improvement?  Otherwise, 
aren't we going to see a lot of vendor-specific 
dialects FOR XML in SQL?  Actually, I think that is 
exactly the kind of problem that Consortiums can 
address successfully since in essence it deals 
directly with interoperability and extensions.
