Webservices + SSL = Good or Bad?

Right now, I have all my web services under one project, secured behind SSL. I have not decided if I want to move the to a better location, like http://webservices.interscapeusa.com, or something like that. Basically to move them out of the SSL security. Now, I'd like some opinions in terms of the effect... is the latency of SSL combined with the serialization of data into XML substantial? Is it worth it to have your data stream encrypted, or would it be better to use WSE to make sure the data is encrypted and not the whole stream? Is there something I'm not considering here? Please leave me comments, thoughts, and suggestions. Thanks.
