We have an ZNG-server without SOAP running in a very short time. It was also no problem to write an in a very short time a HTML-page serving as a ZNG-gateway. The root element of our response is searchRetrieveResponse.
The use of SOAP makes things more complex and it will certainly result in a higher implementation barrier. Maybe it is a stupid question but I am wondering now what is the added value of SOAP in this standard. I know it makes sense in case on none-ascii input.
Secondly to keep the implementation barrier low, isn't it a good idea to respond only with a SOAP envelop if the request was also embedded in SOAP?
The power of simplicity can be of great value to spread the use if ZNG.

FYI - this is still flakey in places and only handles the URL form at
present. Currently returns records in Yanks (Redsox ot whatever)
