Here we are, three years into the SOAP age, further from having
solutions to these problems then we were when we started[1][2]. GREAT!

We could have added the features we needed to HTTP but instead we've
invented a whole new architecture, and then before even standardizing it
we've already torn down big swathes of it (section 5 has been
unofficially deprecated, and now SOAP-for-GET is). But instead we're
actually two steps backwards.
