Cruft

Steve Loughran notices there's some cruft in there...

On a related note, the JRE is full of unwanted legacy cruft like an inadequate CORBA runtime, AWT, etc. While something like an XML parser is ubiquitous and stable, choosing SOAP is itself a decision, and choosing Sun's SOAP stack over more popular alternatives is a serious decision. Hard coding Sun's client may seem like a good thing, but in fact just makes it that much harder to upgrade to JAX-WS 2.1
