I see your point now. I think I was taking the idea that they are
distinct/disjoint/antonyms literally rather than considering this point.
Fine by me, if Mark, Dave O., and others who are deeply involved in sorting
out these concepts and terms can live with them being "sortof disjoint" but
not completely. Still, since the whole point of a reference architecture is
to draw clear lines in abstract space even though the concrete reality is
fuzzy, I'm not sure if this is worth doing.
