Oracle did a bunch of surveys of SOA customers to identify how they most 
quickly leveraged SOA technology for quick wins.  Of the three patterns that 
emerged as the most useful aspect of adopting SOA, extending the mainframe was 
one of them.  
  mainframes all have adapters that expose mainframe data/processes to SOA 
based applications, so the idea is that you don't need the COBOL folks to 
modify mainframe based procedures,  just use the adapters to expose the 
data/functions as services to be orchestrated into new composite apps.
  There is a good white paper on the use cases/business value that came out of 
that study.  
  if anyone is interested, drop me an email, and I'll dig up the otn link, or 
post my electronic copy of it.

about? 11g?

The way  I heard it, PL/SQL will go away soon after COBOL does.
