I'm trying to get past that.  I'd hope that the suggestions I present
would be judged on their own merits.

With that in mind, I think documenting the constraints implicit in the
software developed to SOAP 1.1 + WSDL 1.1 is the best way to describe
the architecture of the system.  So far I've suggested that the existing
WSA includes these constraints on the relationships between components;

- layered
- client/server

and DaveO suggested;

- XML messages

I'm suggesting we continue this process, and include the results in the
architecture document.

Thanks.
