I find it hard to believe that end-users read these specs. End users do
what the tools make easy and I am skeptical that tools will change.
After all they can always say: "nothing is stopping you from responding
to HTTP GET and returning a SOAP message. We just don't provide tools to
integrate that with the rest of your web service."

This IS a step forward but we won't know how big until we see whether it
impacts the tool and service implementors.
