RE: Label for Top Node of "triangle diagram"

I find this diagram to be more than a little scary.  It contains terms that
may (or may not, depending on how they are defined) refer to issues that I
think there is fair consensus we do not want to address in this cut at web
services architecture.  I refer specifically to "Organizational
descriptions", "contracts", and maybe (depending on the meaning) "policies".


Moreover, I seriously do not understand the distinction being made between
"service technologies" and "metadata".  Aside from the observation that one
person's data are another's metadata, I honestly don't understand the
criteria by which you assign things to one side or the other.  Perhaps my
problem is mostly the appearance of SOAP on the left side.  If it weren't
there I think I would have a feeling for what you are trying to get at, but
seeing it there I'm pretty sure I'm not getting it.

So I guess I am both questioning whether portions are "in scope" and also
admitting that "I don't get it", or "I don't find it very helpful".  It's
quite possible, of course, that the two issues are linked, since if I'm not
getting it the thing might be in scope and I just don't understand why ...

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 ;->
