From a REST POV, SOAP adds this;
- mandatory extension mechanism (previously seen in PEP and
- well defined intermediary model (previously seen in PEP, and to a
lesser extent, HTTP 1.1)
- XML syntax for the above
Nothing to sneeze at, but given that hardly anybody takes advantage of
these features, the true value of SOAP will never be realized. IMO,
developers will consider it a failure long before they recognize what
it's really good at.
