Ah, gotcha.  Thanks.

Well, as I know I've said before, I consider the only authority on Web
architecture to be the Web itself.  So if I can point at some constraint
which is widely followed on the Web today, and demonstrate that Web
services don't follow it, then that seems to me to be something that
goes against the architecture, and therefore against the charter and
requirements of the WG.

Anyhow, IMO, this is all going to end up on the lap of the Director at
some point no matter which path we take, so there's probably little use
in discussing the "what" or "how".  I'm interested in the "when". 8-)
Are you planning to request review of the next revision of the arch doc
by the TAG?
