I would be tempted to raise the security and management boxes so they
don't expand all the way down to the transport protocol layer. At the
same time, I would widen the transport protocol so that is the only box
at the very bottom.

Since this is the Web Services Architecture working group, I assume that
it is the intention that only issues that relate to Web Services are
dealt with. If the security and management boxes "touch" the side of the
transport layer, it is suggested to me that there is some work to be
done at that level for security and management. I am not sure whether
any Web Services protocols work is dealing with that layer. However, I
may be very wrong, in which case I apologise.

On the other hand, if the boxes are above the transport layer, then the
use of those transport protocols is demonstrated but not direct work
that involves them is implied.
