ATT: replace it with:

Define and drive platform independent development tools for programming languages.

HP: Development tools and languages pertaining to the architecture needn't be
platform independent.

Intel: Focus on using platform indeopendent development tools needs more
explanantion.  'development tools' should not be part of this sub-goal.

MITRE: I don't think we want to preclude using Visual Studio.net and C# to implement the protocol
specifications which conform to the architecture document.  These are not platform independent.

Java is a platform independent language, but I don't think we want to focus on using it.  I'm not
sure we should give Java any more focus that C# and .NET.

I'm not sure what we're trying to say here.

We probably want to ensure that a wide variety of development tools and languages can be used to
implement and deploy web services.  We should not focus on any particular tool or language; we
should be fair to all.  That is different than a focus on platform-independent tools/languages.

NOK: 1) I do not think this goal should be about platform independence. [1]
2) Even If it was, I do not think an architecture goal should 'focus on
      using platform independent development tools and languages'. [1]

W3C: I don't see our document, which should be talking about technologies
in a more or less abstract way, focus on development tools nor
(programming) languages.

Therefore, I don't see a need to focus on their platform independence.
The general platform independence statement in D-AC004 should cover
those.

Comment from the Chair: Can we remove this one? There is a strong and consistent
sentiment above that this CSF does not really apply.
