Your right. I did misread it. If it's as simple as recommending that
developers use a different port without throwing out all those HTTP-oriented
tools for doing it, then that's fine with me. However -- to be honest -- my
firewall administrator is going to ask me why I can't just use port 80. But
in terms of defining SOAP specs and best practices, and getting the vendors
thinking more about best practices, this is just fine with me.
