I think that's at least in the spirit of what we're saying in the resolution
text.  Obviously Web services messages get tranferred / trasported somehow.
In my own understanding (not speaking for the WG) the whole point of basing
the Web services technologies on XML is to not have to care about the
underlying protocols, i.e., put all the information necessary to perform the
requested operation in the XML message so that it can be preserved  and
processed irrespective of the transport/transfer mechanism.

Perhaps that allows us to "not reference networking layers at all" as far as
the formal architecture is concerned.  Clearly we have to *say* something
about all this because it creates so much controversy and confusion.
