The rationale for it?

Why adding the whole HTTP overhead would be better? HTTP is the Hyper Text 
Transfer Protocol. It was made  to transport text data. It became ubiquitous 
because of fashion, and because port 80 is usually open in every firewall 
(and IMHO defeating firewalls in first place, unless a full stateful 
inspection is made...)

A SOAP or WebDAV implementation of CVS is feasible, I guess, but what 
benefits they would really bring, compared to the current implementation? 
Less work for lazy sysadmins? :-)
