Mario,

Regarding security, it was positioned as an "orthogonal" (maybe not exactly the right term) concept, meaning it applies to all layers, as does management.

I am not sure it is helpful to additionally list it in any of the layers since the right hand security box is intended to imply that security applies to all layers.  This would have to be explained in accompanying text.

THanks,

Eric

Eric,

be omitted from the stack diagram?
 >Or perhaps underneath everything?
Oops. Sorry. I missed the transport layer.
It should be right under the XML Base Technology layer.
I added it to the diagram and attached a new version.

Note the double mention of security (once within the Messaging layer and 
once as separate overall topic) could be regarded as redundant. From my 
point of view the additional mentioning of security within the messaging 
  layer (more precisely: within the SOAP Extensions layer) makes since 
SOAP requires extra work to bring in security.

What do you think?

Mario
