+1 for creating a new project called and migrating 
Apache Axis, Apache SOAP, WSIF, WSIL etc. under that as components.
That means there would be one set of committers, one PMC, one set
of rules/guidelines etc.. 

I think this is the best solution for Apache, Axis, WSIF and all
Web services projects in Apache. If we get our act together and
create a coherent set of Web services functionality under one Apache
brand, that has the potential to be a driving force very much similar
to how and have become. Creating
different top level projects will fragment the developer community
and end up in creating duplication and overlap rather than coherance
and unity.

Doing this would move us further away from the IMHO right goal of
a single Web services community in Apache.
