    SOA existed for a reason. SOA survive or not is not as important as Mr. David Newman pointed out, that we have to agree on what is an account, what is an account holder, or what is a borrower.
    If we can agree on metadata, semantic web will become more powerful. Yet, it is possible SOA becomes a larger set of metadata as one of the audience pointed out. It does not matter the name SOA survive of not, it will depend on who will work on them or drop them.
