My impression is that the WS-* proposals are analogous to the standard
libraries in R6RS (or SRFIs), the "Adjuncts" sections of the SOAP and
WSDL specifications are analogous to the R6RS base library, and that
most of the complexity in the core of SOAP and WSDL is analogous to
the complexity of the R6RS library system.
