Add to that;

Ken Arnold's recent interview about some difficulties in distributed
systems design; http://www.artima.com/intv/distrib.html

And another big +1 for the Waldo paper (IMO, it should be required
reading for the WG).

It's also important to note that Web architecture has an answer for many
of these hard problems.  For example, stateless interactions minimize
(i.e. byzantine failure is always a problem) the impact of partial
failure since application state is localized (in the Web's case, with
the message sender).
