with very HTTP-like characteristics. If you use a WebDAV library you
know what to expect in terms of synchronousness, message patterns, etc.
SOAP does not predefine message patterns independent of the transport.
One transport could be synchronous and the next asynchronous. One
unidirectional and the next bidirectional. One transport could have an
addressing model and another lack one. etc.
