My apologies if I'm way off, I haven't been following the SOAP list so
closely lately - but even if its one-way, the sending and receiving
end both have to know the types & formats (or names & args in the case
of RPC) of the messages/calls don't they?  Doesn't that point towards
tight coupling?

Thanks
