This of course assumes that Web services are part of the Web architecture, which is not at all clear from my reading of the draft spec.  I'll send detailed comments separately.

I would love to talk about that last part.  I think we'd all agree that
there are going to be some major disconnects, and so we should talk
about what we're going to do about them.

We've heard Roy's view on this;

  "So, given a desired set of properties, how do want to constrain the
   interaction between elements such that the desired properties are
   obtained?  That should be the focus of our architecture document.
   The constraints are the normative aspects of Web architecture --
   those things we expect W3C working groups to obey whether they like
   them or not.  They are not wishes, suggestions, or good practice --
   they are commands."

I don't know if Roy will get his way or not, but certainly he's quite
concerned about architectural disconnects.

I would like to have a slot, if possible.
