SOAP - how has it survived so long?

Pete Lacey’s Weblog : The S stands for Simple:

I just got handed this link by my development team and thought it was pretty funny.  Don't be put off by the long page, it is mainly comments, some of which are pretty funny in themselves.

I was still laughing when I saw that the post dates from 2006.  Suddenly it seems poignant instead, how come we are still wrestling with such a hard to fathom and implement 'simple' protocol when the truly simple protocol, HTTP, has been staring us in the face all these years?
