It should be more like XML over XMPP to XML over HTTP.
HTTP is a synconous Protocol. XMPP is ansynconous.

Webservices are not limited to SOAP. SOAP is a really bad protocol. It's 

<translate from="englich" to="german">hi</translate>

The service must not be limited to SOAP - SOAP makes no sense.

The problem is the "to" attribute.

Maybe it's a better idea to do it like a "normal" transport to ICQ, AIM,....

And do the jabber-id to http-url mapping server side.
I have no experience in addressing and I don't know normal transports 
very well.
But maybe someone likes this idea and helps me to make a jep.
