Hi Daniel,

I'm surprised by the way that DG0020 is worded in section 2.2.2 of the
Req draft.  I take it that it was the result of some hasty cut-and-paste.
The "To develop a standard reference architecture for web services that"
intro is superfluous and makes the goal statement inconsistent with
others in writing style, e.g. all other goal statements begin
with a verb.  The whole WS-Arch will be a reference architecture,
won't it?  Mentioning ref arch in D-[A]G0020 only serves to confuse
most readers.  

I much prefer the original version, which was like:
   enables privacy protection for the consumers of Web services
   across multiple domains and services. 


   enables privacy protection of the consumer of a Web service
   across multiple domains and services. 

Also, I thought G0020 was meant to be an architectural item.
I still think it is.  [Hugo, can you please confirm this?]
If it indeed is, then the designation should be D-AG0020
instead of DG0020.
