Thanks for the new draft; obviously, this is the result of a lot of efforts!

Regarding the new definition for a Web Service: apart from being more 
specific (WSDL, SOAP, HTTP), which I like, the other major difference 
seems to be that a Web Service is no longer identified by a URI. Is this 
intentional? Shouldn't this be added back?

<previousDefinition>
A Web service is a software system identified by a URI [...].

Comments?
