Re: Announce: A Busy Developer's Guide to SOAP 1.1

Joel, these are relevant points, but only in a historic sense. SOAP is what
it is. I learned a tremendous amount from the process and will share what I
learned when there's enough time to do that. Right now the clock is ticking,
interop is a vague concept being determined through perceived market muscle,
not with a philosophy of inclusion. That's what's happening *now*. What
happened before is probably related to that. But we have no power over the
past, it is what it is. Dave
