Reading thru the requirements doc, I have few questions and one comment!

D-AC011.1.5 statelessness

which comes from design principles of the current web,

Does it indicate that web services can not contain state?.

and 

D-AC011.1.17 User can use browser to interact.

which states that user can use a browser to interact with a web service.
Does it mean that every web service shall have a UI part to it?.

If so, the definition may be incorrect:

A Web service is a software application identified by a URI, whose
interfaces and binding are capable of being defined, described and
discovered by XML artifacts and supports direct interactions with other
software applications using XML based messages via internet-based protocols


D-AC011.1.22 RDF models for technologies produced.

This one is plain wrong, IMO. design principles of the existing web does not
use RDF models for technologies produced.
