This must lead to a philosophical discussion.. :)

I leave that to: http://www.xs4all.nl/~irmen/comp/CORBA%20vs%20SOAP.html

Some more here:

The .NET idea from MS is to use SOAP. I'm with you! Mono needs CORBA!
More developers would prefer mono instead of other if it did. 

We could wrap Bonobo for gtk, couldn't we?

But I believe that there is need for an orbit for mono in general.
