As you said, time will tell, but you were talking about Web services, not 
applications.  I thought this is what the entire thread was about.  I can 
assure you that I have spoken to/worked with quite a few in the nascent Web 
services space, and that most have learned not to take anything for granted, 
as long as it is conformant.

You'd be surprised how much SOAP work is proceeding without Section 5.
