Architecture component is better.

Given the current defn of Architecture in the glossary, I am fine with
using "software component" (we will discuss this further in RTF)

However, as I pointed out earlier, use of "software" as a qualifier
does not seem right for WS component or WS architecture. What is
by software can be accomplished by hardware tomorrow, may be using 
living cells day-after-tomorrow!

Ok.  But why would "software component" not suffice?  "component" itself
is quite overloaded, and really should be qualified.  I'm just
suggesting that we use the qualification that is already in our
architecture definition, rather than define a new term.
