Granted. Though this is not new, nor related strictly to web services.  Any set of services that communicate through a standard message format provides a level of decoupling.

OO provides decoupling at a smaller granule than services like these. OO provides for coupling *within* the code of the services. OO provides decoupling at the *line-of-code* level.
