This is indeed a good thing.

Now, a technical question: we already have two projects which have a
pretty high overlap (SOAP and Axis). Why do we need another one? Can't
this "WASP lite" be donated as directly to Axis instead of creating yet
another project on webservices?

I admit my total ignorance on the problems and this is why I'm asking
without stating a vote, but it looks to me that we don't need more
subprojects for web services and if this was the case, I would like to
treat them as "internal" competing branches, rather than external

So, please, enlighten me.
