   I keep coming back to this message and starting
to type out replies then deleting them before 
sending. The claims you are making are rather 
strange. Maybe you could explain how WS-* solves
these problems, that of POE and Authentication, so I 
have something to compare against.

Thanks for the analysis of both these methods, but you missed the point.
I brought them up to demostrate that HTTP auth is extensible. If the current
schemes don't meet your requirements why aren't you working within
the HTTP framework to define an authentication mechanism that *does*
meet your needs.
