Anyway, we can probably deal with it by providing an

sending them via HTTP on port 80, we could supply an

SOAP is actually transport-independent to some degree.
This would give firewall administrators their control back.
However, I'm not too sure how effective this would
be unless lots of other vendors adopted the same port.

Yes, Jabber is now able to route SOAP around it's platform on port 5222. And I suppose firewalls could be built that only allowed SOAP requests from certain Jabber ID's, not just "the world in general".
