Current wording:

  is coherent and consistent in its definition

I proposed amending the wording[1] to include the concept of completeness in
the architecture, but this met with some opposition[2].  I still think it is
a good idea, but am dropping my proposal in the interest of moving on.  

The wording was revised to clarify the distinction between the product and
the document).  The proposed wording is:

  This reference architecture should be consistent and coherent. This
applies 
  to both the reference architecture itself and the document that contains
its
  definition. 

Proposed CSFs:

- Simple visualization of architecture in the form of a two-dimensional
diagram[1]
- "Architecture supports the concepts used in commonly accepted design
patterns." [1]
- "Architectural components work together to form a logical whole." [2]
- "Architecture does not do the same or similar things in mutually
incompatible ways; it is not self-contradictory." [2]
- "There not wildly different means to achieve the same ends in the
architecture." [2]
