Everybody and their mother agrees that doing web services RPC-style is a Bad Thing, but not many people would extend that to request/response, which is a useful and common pattern in any sort of remote communication scenario. It's not as easy as one might imagine, though, to find out how the SOAP, WSDL and WS-A specs and the rest of WS-* stack can be used to support this pattern when combined with asynchronous messaging.
