Not sure that I referred to it only as an implementation.  You have my
apologies if I misled.  Before anyone thinks I'm lambasting everyting
coming out of the JCP, let me clarify.  My negative comments were aimed
only at JAXM, both spec and implementation, specifically if you're interested
in doing asynchronous document-oriented SOAP messaging or more than the most
basic SOAP message manipulation.  Axis will provide more in these areas
because the project and to boot, you can contribute in small or big ways.
You can already see how the org.apache.axis.message package is more useful
than javax.xml.soap alone, even though it is careful to implement
javax.xml.soap interfaces (for implementing JAX-RPC since JAX-RPC makes use
of JAXM's javax.xml.soap).

Yes, but the lastest draft is a proposed final draft, which implies that
the amount of change probably (but not definitely) won't be so great.
