>  information space. Identification, data formats, and protocols
>  are the main technical components of Web Architecture, but the
>  large-scale effect depends on social behavior as well.

>  "This document strives to establish a reference set of
>  principles for Web architecture."

I found this document an interesting and important read, and 
recommend it to all of you to (it is explicitely aimed at members of 
W3C WGs).  I don't think we have time to ask someone to do a group 
review, but let me encourage you all to send your comments (including 
positive ones) to the TAG public list -- if you think our mail 
archive is contentious -- you should see theirs!

p.s. My personal thanks to Dan C for managing to keep our group going 
while getting the TAG stuff out as well - thanks Dan!
