I fully agree with that. SOAP is widely adopted but everything else
on SOAP might be considers as YAGNI.

This stuff is in some way too overengineered and too complex for being
adopted in projects. Specs that are only understandable for the editors
specs for the trashcan.

not have to adhere to some complicated wsdl spec.
