I'm probably missing some subtlety here but the .NET framework already
implements SOAP, I'm not quite sure what there is to implement here.

Mono has an implementation of the System.Web.Services classes and it
appears from 


that this is largely complete.  Again I might be misunderstanding what
you are planning on doing.

THe .NET Framework has its own Web Services architecture based around
ASP.NET and building on its support for XML and SOAP serialization, it
is a fairly different approach to that taken by Axis but as I see it
this is largely due to to it's degree of integration and dependency on
the framework as a whole.
