Notes to Inheritors:  When you inherit from SoapTransportImporter, you must override the following members: IsSupportedTransport and ImportClass.

The default implementations of these members perform no action.

CAUTION   Although this class is designed to serve as the base class for user-defined classes, the current implementation of XML Web services does not support such user-defined classes.
