Why only MessageContracts in Operations?

I recently starting using Web Service Software Factory Modelling edition.  From my intial investigations it appears your operations can only have MessageContracts and not DataContacts.  Is there a way to allow DataContracts in your Service operations?

Was this done because there are advantages(message format clearly marked) by using MessageContracts compared to DataContracts in your operations? Or are there other reasons?
