soap call APIs of sharepoint are based on view not the data underneath

Today I got the unexpected error, and the reason, is that soap APIs is based on view(default or specified). By referencing soap APIs, i mean group of APIs like this:

The specific problem is:

query error soap:Server with code 0x80070024: The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold enforced by the administrator.

it's because the list is too huge it has exceeded the limit set by the admin(which is 9000). however, i have query clause for this, so if it applies, it won't return more than 80 items.

So is there any work around or solution to this, i.e. query or modify items directly to the data itself, like COM, instead of going through the view?

oh... how would MS take this design. Both COM and soap API work based on view. now I am in big sh*t.

it makes totally no sense to have these programming apis based on view. they are supposed to deal with the model underneath directly.
