I agree SOAP with (MIME) Attachment is probably more interoperable than DIME.
However, keep in mind that WS-I BP 1.1 has a SOAP Attachment Profile 1.0
finalized since last year. 
I believe currently WS-BP 1.1 is being supported by some commercial SOAP vendors with SOAP
Attachment Profile 1.0.
However, AXIS does not support WS-BP 1.1 nor does it support SOAP 
Attachment Profile; this support will be available in AXIS 2.0.
On the other hand, in gSOAP there seem to be some support for WS-BP 1.1.
I think it was a mistake for AXIS 1.2 not to have support for WS BP 1.1.
AXIS 2 may be months (or who knows may be more than a year) from being released as final release,
and having such support AXIS 1.x would have
been a great opportunity towards interoperable web services.

I need a clarification on this topic - 
For SOAP v1.1, there are two standards for attachments - MIME (aka SwA) and DIME. WS-I has
recommended MIME.  Is DIME popular among the vendors other than Microsoft? Does SOAP/WebServices
vendors (other than Microsoft) supports DIME?
For SOAP v1.2, MTOM will be the standard for attachment. Will MTOM replace MIME and DIME in
SOAP 1.2?

Last week Axis2 MTOM & WSE3.0 July CTP succesfully interop for a simple sample. There
were few issues in earlier CTP's with respect to MIME handling, which they have corrected
in the July CTP.
