Sorry to repeat this message, but I don't want it to get lost in the reading
list thread:

That W3C Technical Architecture Group has released its first official draft
of Architectural Principles of the World Wide Web [1].  It is obviously
relevant to the WSA, and while no formal reponse from the WSA WG has been
requested, we should read it, discuss it, consider how to align with it, and
push back on anything that is incompatible with our view of the Web Services
Architecture.

I'm not sure whether it needs a specific slot on the F2F agenda (advice
solicited!) but it should be considered required reading, and is likely to
come up in several contexts.

Excerpts:

'Abstract

The World Wide Web is a networked information system. Web Architecture is
the set of principles that all agents in the system follow to create the
large-scale effect of a shared information space. Identification, data
formats, and protocols are the main technical components of Web
Architecture, but the large-scale effect depends on social behavior as well.

This document strives to establish a reference set of principles for Web
architecture.

Status of this document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of its
publication. Other documents may supersede this document. The latest status
of this document series is maintained at the W3C.

This is the first public Working Draft of "Architectural Principles of the
World Wide Web." This document has been developed by W3C's Technical
Architecture Group (TAG) (charter).

This draft represents substantial input from TAG participants, but does not
yet represent consensus. It is also incomplete; sections 1 and 2 are the
most developed, 3 and 4 the least. The TAG has published a number of
findings that address specific architecture issues. Parts of those findings
may appear in subsequent drafts. Please also consult the list of issues
under consideration by the TAG.

Publication as a Working Draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C
Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or
obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this
document as other than "work in progress."

The latest information regarding patent disclosures related to this document
is available on the Web. As of this publication, there are no disclosures.

Please send comments on this document to the public W3C TAG mailing list
www-tag@w3.org (archive).'
