>Is this really something that Apache Axis needs?

Yes, I think it makes sense to migrate as many users as possible from
Apache SOAP to Axis. I agree that java serializability is not something
you'd introduce for its own sake if there wasn't a precedent and a
requirement from a user.

Fair enough. I've added a comment to MessageElement as this is the root of
the changes.

I can't say as I'm biassed :-). Other users of Apache SOAP *may* also have
exploited the java serializability of the DOM tree.
