This should be a good thread. I could go on and on about this, but at
the most rudimentary level (being very simple with the language, and
making some basic assumptions):

- A primary foundation of SOA is shared services

- Semantic Web services will be described in a semantically rich-enough
manner so as to be efficiently discovered (by "efficiently", I mean both
easily and according to the service discoverer's criteria such as QoS

- SOA + Semantic Web = More easily discovered services that are better
tailored to a service discoverer's (human or machine) needs, thereby
enabling service providers to broaden their reach, and service
discoverers to have their processing needs more easily met (higher
"service satisfaction") - which translates into better service for their
customers (if a customer-oriented scenario).
