However, although I do not remember the exact words TimBL used (and anyway he generally talks in such a way that I might not even be able to define the concept of the exact words he used), it may be that his question was not, "Have we provided a mapping of specs onto an architecture diagram", but "Have we provided a diagram on which specs can be mapped".  That's kind of a different question and probably a better one.

 
Yes, that's the way I originally understood TimBL remarks. In other words, it would be nice to have an architecture spec that could identify areas currently covered by standard efforts and company proprietary specs (e.g. Choreography - we don't need to identify the individual specs if we don't want to), areas only currently addressed by company proprietary specs (e.g. Transactions - again, no need to mention specific specs), and areas not currently addressed by any specification effort, be it from a standards organization or from specific companies (e.g. Dave Orchard's proposed caching of SOA responses for higher network perf).
