I don't think so -- I have seen about one project per year since 2006
completely screwed up by the see-next-week's-model, "haute software"
culture of the SOAP hype machine. None of those projects is yet (to my
knowledge) realizing any return on their investment in SOAP.

At which point, you might as well just *use* XML-RPC: without "tool
support" (which is what those technologies promise), you can't pretend
to interoperate with the other suds.

Given the extensibility of *both* Zope2 and Zope3, I can see no benefit
to putting it in the core, over defining it in an add-on: at least that
way, folks who need to track one of the *different* sets of semantics
won't be fooled into thinking the core already provides it: instead,
they can stumble over the extension(s), and direct their complaints to
*those* maintainers, instead of to us. ;)
