I just got back from the Microsoft Tech-Ed 2000 Conference in Orlando.
I think it is interesting that you brought up these points, because
they were a couple of the points emphasized at the conference:

2. SOAP is also very hot; it is now available as an add-in

3. On a related note, Web Parts (formerly called nuggets)is also
hot for the Second Generation Digital Dashboard applications
The theme of the conference was "Building the Business Internet."
