Sorta yeah.  Makes sense.   Scrubs clean some old messes
with its powerful abrasive power or something like that.
Far more effective on caked on messes than mere SOAP.

Still, there's some beautiful austerity and maturity of thought
to what's emerging in the XML / XPath / XSLT / XQuery
world that draws on a lot of experience and perspective
"the kids" clearly lack.    It'll all get a lot more interesting
when things like the ajax world start to get coalesced and
rationalized and standardized a bit more.  "The kids" will be
shocked :-)
