This is not quite the way it worked. SOAP 1.1 was done by a small group
of individuals. Your complaint has validity for SOAP 1.2 :) XML RPC
was a "pre-release" of SOAP because Dave Winer got tired of waiting for
MSFT to allow their folks to sign-off on SOAP.
For myself, SOAP 1.1 hits the sweet spot; XML RPC is too limited and
SOAP 1.2 is too yucky.
