That seems to be the point, except today we're also talking about SOAP, XML-RPC
(XML documents in the payload).

It's asynchronous (like voicemail) so the sender doesn't have to worry about
establishing a synchronous connection.
Unlike the '90s, you don't have to purchase a messaging middleware product.
Microsoft's MSMQ comes "in the box" with the operating system. There's
freely-downloadable ebXML Messaging software, for example.
