how big a problem this is. Trying to use document/literal web services
from clients in PHP, Python, or Perl is really difficult. And I
despair of good doc/lit ever being implemented in those languages,
because of the general anti-SOAP feeling from many folks who would be
natural developers for scripting languages. They're too busy getting
things done with ad-hoc solutions to keep up with WS-* documents.
I like doc/lit better than rpc/encoded too, and I think that WS-I BP
1.0 is a great piece of work. But as a practical matter the switch to
doc/lit has set back interop.
