simply a router for SOAP-based messages - the difference between
pre-SOAP routers being, of course, that the SOAP router can interpret
the information in the SOAP header and perform functions such as

More specifically, the SOAP router could inspect the SOAP header for its
intended destination and compare that destination with a "referral
table" at the router to refer (re-route) the SOAP message to another
destination for load-balancing, avoidance of down nodes, etc.
