A significant problem in the trenches for Web Services isn?t the ability to play nice or not with existing Internet protocols, or its complicated type system, or Object/XML impedence. It?s optionality. When you get down to it, too much in Web Services is optional. Calling the specs composable and thus dressing that up as feature is pointless - optionality is a curse. Yes, WS specs are designed to be composable, but this underplays the fragmentation costs of not having an interoperable core.
