Why SOAP is called a Wire Level Protocol?

hmmm... i just realized that my previous answer was actually too fast... SOAP is not a wire protocol.

SOAP actually sits above a wire protocol. Most of the emphasis on SOAP is usually in relations to HTTP connections, however, HTTP is not the only possible wire protocol. There are some products today that are capable of performing SOAP calls over a JMS based link. In that case, the wire protocol is whichever protocol used in a particular JMS implementation (some use RMI, others use proprietary TCP/IP based protocols).

It is in reference to the fact that SOAP is the protocol (set of conventions) used by client and server at the lowest level of their communication.
