Just because other things are SOAs doesn't mean that this stuff isn't SOA
too...
And we just need to buck up here and admit it,
even if we have to find a definition for it, its been around for a while,
there's gotta be one we
can plagiarize

I'd be all for removing any mention of SOAs, if only because I can't
think of a distributed system which isn't about services.  Email, ftp,
irc, the Web; all are SOAs.  Besides, we'd have to define it, and we
know how icky getting concensus on definitions can be. 8-/
