I would suggest that we adopt a practice of always capitalizing terms that 
we have specifically defined, in order to distinguish from colloquial 
usage.  Under this practice, we should always capitalize the term "Web 
Service" when referring to the term we have defined in the document. I 
think this helps the reader to identify terms that have special meaning.
