SOA rises from the soup

"Order does not spontaneously form from disorder. A tornado passing through a junkyard would never assemble a 747.

"Order does not spontaneously form from disorder. A tornado passing through a junkyard would never assemble a 747."
- Fred Hoyle, The Intelligent Universe, 1983.

Web services and SOA efforts often do represent a state of disorder, but fortunately, there is intelligence bringing things together. Jeff Schneider of Momentum even observes a sea change as of late: some strains of SOA appear to be emerging from the primordial soup of organizational systems and processes. The early adopters, at least, have reached their first stage of maturity. As Schneider outs it: "they have a SOA strategy in place, a SOA methodology, a reference model, candidate architectures and core infrastructure components -- registry, repository, SOAP routers & firewalls, pipe & filter mediation, service bus, SOA EII, metadata compliance, testing suites, SOAP-to-Legacy adaptors, specialized service servers."

Should we say "SOA rises from the SOAP"?
