Re: So what do SOAP and XML-RPC buy you?

That's what I'd call a marshaling API.  In this case, it'd be a policy-rich
layer over the "stream of MIME content" style APIs that already exist.

The XML-over-HTTP messaging would use those stream'o'MIME
calls directly, rather than with intervening policies for SOAP etc.
