We describe the only two significant of the residual birefringence of
high-quality fibers on solitons in long-distance transmission: a possible
gradual accumulation of differential transit time between orthogonally polarized
solitons and a jitter in pulse arrival times, initiated by noise modulation of
the polarization states of the pulses and mediated by the birefringence.
