There were some discussions in yesterday's teleconference about the
word "reliable" in D-AC007 and more precisely in D-AC007.1:

|   D-AC007.1 The Web Service Architecture is reliable.
| 
|   D-AR007.1.1 The Web Service Architecture is precisely defined without
|   ambiguity,
| 	  D-AR007.1.1.1 using standard definition languages whenever
|   applicable and available,
| 	  D-AR007.1.1.2 using standard terms, and clearly defined new terms.

It seems to me that reliable here is confusing: D-AR007.1.1 suggests
that what is actually intended is that the architecture is defined
with precise terms.

If this is the case, I think that "reliable" should be replaced by
"precisely and unambiguously defined".

Note that such a change would also affect D-AG002 and D-AR007.2.3.1.

If this is not what is intended, which is what Daniel was suggesting,
then I think that D-AR007.1.1 isn't related to D-AC007.1, and we
should have a definition of what a reliable architecture is because
this is unclear to me.

If we agree on this, I think that the whole D-AC007* could be
approved. It seemed to be the last subject of discussion.

Regards,

Hugo
