SOAP is an open format with few restrictions. As SOAP Extensibility Model says -

A SOAP feature is an extension of the SOAP messaging framework

As simple as it sounds, it's quite amazing. It practically means that out-of-the-box, SOAP is featureless. Really an interesting concept. Therefore the SOAP extensibility Model is so important.
