Actually, I'm suggesting we pull the web services out of DayTrader all together and write another web services sample app. If DayTrader is truly meant to be a "performance benchmark", why would you leave something in there that is in clear violation of performance best practices. Doesn't exactly send the right message if you ask me.

You make a good point about the WebServices. I'd suggest that we
document the current limitations of comparing these WebServices in
performance benchmarks. That should help to set everyone's
expectations about the relevant usefulness of the data.
For WebServices it sounds like your suggesting that we deprecate web
services for performance work rather than for functional purposes
like was done for the MDB primitives. I'd be for adding the warning
in a readme.
