This is an interesting diagram in that in brings up some topics we haven't
brought out yet... like explicitly calling out relationships as a layer,
but it looks more like an architecture stack variation (like the ones we've
been tacking on the triangle) and the relationship of thos stack levels
to different technologies.

I agree we need to do that and Mark and I exchanged some variations that
added it.

I think this diagram is sorta scarey as a very first chart, but something
like it would be usefull later on in the discussion.

I still feel like we need a simpler first diagram.

The triangle is simple.  I don't think it confuses. I do think that it goes
down MUCH better with some words. I don't think its possible to come up
with a diagram that expresses the breadth of web services that doesn't need
a few words. The other nice thing about the triangle is that its been
around for a while as a intro to web services (not just from IBM) and many
coming to this spec may feel comfortable seeing and thinking about
it again.

This is a resend of a diagram I sent out earlier.

It is different kind of diagram to the triangle as it doesn't focus on
the players in the game so much. However,  see my previous comments ;->
