>Why is this a good thing?

A product development group in IBM have been running successfully with
Apache SOAP and have recently begun supporting Axis. The way the product is
structured requires, for its own purposes, the message parse tree to be
passed to an enterprise bean. In order to support old versions of EJB
server which do not have EJB v2 local interfaces, the message parse tree
needs to be java serializable, as was Apache SOAP's DOM tree.

So my changes are a help in migrating this product from Apache SOAP to
Axis. Clearly after the migration has been done and it is reasonable to
pre-req. EJB v2, serializability will no longer be an absolute requirement,
but it is essential as a stop-gap measure.
