If security is considered a non-functional requirement( an architectural
quality) for WS technologies it sure belongs in the domain of architecture.
If security is considered a functional requirement( a feature of the WS) to
be addressed seperately, there may be a need to have a seperate working
group.

I would be comfortable having Arch WG to address this, and ensure that all
ws technologies consider these aspects. Treating security as a quality of
the architecture would go long way in making web services successful.

IMO.

Sateesh

As a friendly amendment, while it is certainly within the scope [1] of
the WS-Arch WG to consider security and licensing, it doesn't seem to be
within its scope to actually define such mechanisms.
