SOA hangover?

I've got this feeling that there is a SOA (SO) hangover. Do you agree? This led to me constructing the following "law" of hype evolution:
  • First hype
    (or "wow, X is the answer to everything. It'll put an end to war and forests will be green again")

  • Then hangover
    (or "sigh, there are so many difficulties with X...")

  • Finally positioning
    (or "ah, X would provide an elegant solution to *this* nasty problem we've now got")
OK, OK, I guess there *might* be some slightly more evolved theories about this...
