When constructing a message, if I should not have to choose between
building an XML document and encoding the same information in an URL
with query string parameters. I should be able to do the same thing all

OK. First, we should be clear about exactly what is being compared here.
Are we comparing SOAP to the ad-hock sending XML messages? Are we
comparing SOAP to DCOM, CORBA, or other RPC protocols? Are we comparing
SOAP to a more RESTful methodology?
