Is anyone on the list familier with SOAP?

 http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-box-http-soap-00.txt

SOAP is an HTTP/XML based RPC mechanism being pushed by MS, I think, as a
replacement for DCOM. Does anyone see any inherent difficulties with
accomodating SOAP in Apache? From reading the IETF draft, it appears we
would need to support the M-Post method and recognise some additional
headers. Doesn't sound to onorous.  Beyond that, seems the capability to
build and transport SOAP objects would rely on a good XML parser and a
scripting engine (PHP, mod_perl, Jakarta, etc). What's SOAPs status in the
IETF?  The upcoming IETF in DC doesn't mention it or an HTTP WG meeting
either.
