eZ publish got a powerful link management, the main features:
* URL Translator *
The URL translator is a very useful feature that let you write more
browser friendly and user-friendly urls. You can rewrite system urls
like content/view/full/42 to /services. You can also use the URL
translator for forwarding an old url to its new location.
* Link checker *
Via cronjob or manually, you can check external links for validity.
Links are automatically extracted from any content and placed in a
separate list. That way, a link only needs to be modified at one place
to propagate the changes to any content containing the link.
* Internal linking *
The forthcoming release 3.6.0 ships with an enhanced internal linking
system. It allows to move around content objects which are linked from
within content without breaking the link. Find more infos in the spec:
The related new version of the eZ publish Online Editor will provide a
WYSIWYG GUI for simple editing of internal links.

SOAP in eZ publish? Yes, just like any cool CMS :)
A generic XML import extension is available as a community contribution:
http://www.ez.no/community/contribs. Building your own import module is
not a big thing if you know PHP.
Many more (not all) eZ publish features are listed here:
