Definitely a good goal.

I can't think of any reason why that should not be possible. You
probably want to support both though to allow for configurations where
the web-services gateway is running on a dedicated machine.

A couple of comments on the architecture page:

I don't see any mention of client side support (e.g. using a web service
from an EJB) - is this something you are planning to address?

You should hook the XML parsing stuff into Geronimo's deployment
mechanism - I believe Aaron Mulder was already asking what, if any,
additional elements were needed in the vendor DDs. We want to avoid the
case where the same XML gets parsed many times by many services. This
should also be integrated with Geronimo's MBean model so that the web
services specific components are manageable.

Can you define the hooks into the security services e.g. how you would
support future message level authentication (I would like to know we had
at least considered some of the security issues).
