And more importantly I'd argue, *how* are those technologies used?
"SOA" encompasses many different architectural styles, some more or
less suited for particular tasks (e.g. integration) than others.
Few Web services technologies embody much in the way of architectural
constraints, though some embody a lack thereof.  For example, WSDL only
makes sense once you've rejected all forms of interface constraint.
