Isn't this what everyone learned from the Corba experiments ?

Unfortunately the WSDL people don't seem quite interested in this
idea ....

The point is the differences should remain *inside* the webservice
and not in the interfaces ..... XML is fairly standardizable across
platforms so why not ? (unlike binary protocols)

Does someone remember X11 here ? (IIRC which was an ASCII protocol)

Webservices depend basically on XML which is fairly portable across 
platforms (languages,OS,hardware) . CORBA needed a lot of knowhow to
get working (like IDL....) , COM is good but over networks ?. RMI was
cool , but not portable enough to other languages.... And these are 
binary protocols , so write (,rewrite and rewrite) support in all the
languages you want .

Also what about Async processing ?

imagine HoTMaiL locking all users to use Passport ... Oh , that has
happened already ..... What about the same happening for a webservice ?

/Me is absolutley Zero in CORBA , my experience with XMLRPC has been
very good ... it's kinda stable and sooooo easy to do in Python
