There are several articles discussing this very topic on XML.com.  In 
some ways, a REST architectural style, is simpler and easier to 
implement than a SOAP interface.  The last web services type application 
I developed, was solely based on REST as it didn't need the extra stuff 
that SOAP involved, the standard protocols were secure enough.  I might 
also suggest taking a look at EBXML and their messaging standards as an 
alternative to just SOAP.
