Mark,

Apologies for missing that in one of your earlier emails.  I'm glad we can go ahead.

What do you think of the idea for finding common ground by avoiding the constraint requiring generic interfaces?

Regards,

Eric

Eric,

I'm not sure where you're getting the impression that I don't want to
include SOAP & WSDL in our work.  In fact, it's just the opposite; I
want them to be front and center in it.  So I'd be happy to proceed
with what you described here.  Now we just need a structure for the
architecture document in which to describe it, since the current
document doesn't have a place for it.

I suggest we restructure the architecture document like this, in order
to better capture the architectural elements that we've harvested;

1 Introduction
  I would move the "Overview" diagram to the Logical Model section
2 Logical Model
  I haven't thought about this section much, but we should find a way
  to integrate the "features" we harvested into it.
 2.1 Protocols
 2.2 Description
 2.3 Discovery
 2.4 System Aspects
3 Architecture
 3.1 Components
 3.2 Connectors
 3.3 Data Elements
 - Optionally, we could add other views of the architecture.  I don't
   think this is necessary at this point, but others might want to.

Thoughts?
