SOAs don't enable mashups?

If you have a SOA infrastructure than you have soap xml messages over http or may be mq messages. So you can use these to orchestrate/choreograph sercices but this is composing at the system/backend integration level. Mashup is more of an integration at the UI level. It expects the services to be available as javascripts. Think JSON/REST. So what do you have to do with those SOA services? For the ones that make sense to be available to do mashups currently you would have to expose them as javascript and having nothing to do with SOA related services. So what do you think?
