That looks correct.   However, there is one caveat about these types of things 
with CXF that may complicate things: with the way CXF streams things, such 
marks also take into affect the the network latencies and such.   Basically, 
if you have a slow client feeding data slowly, the performance on the server 
is not going to look good, but it's not it's fault.   It's trying to read 
data, but is blocked waiting for the client to send it.

Outgoing may be easier if all you want it marshalling.   There are PRE_MARSHAL 
and POST_MARSHAL phases.

What may be a good starting point is to look at the performance metrics 
recorded with the current stuff in the cxf-rt-management stuff.   It 
currently records performance numbers for complete round trips (not just the 
marshal/unmarshal stuff) so it might be good to wire some additional phases 
and such in there to get more information.
