The WS Architecture Requirements [1] document refers to "TAG
Architecture Categorization" [2] as a normative reference.  This is not
a good idea since this web page clearly states:

"This is not a formal document in any sense, nor a working draft of the
W3C. It is a working space for the TAG. Like all categorizations it is
to a certain extent arbitrary. The tree structure below does not in any
way dictate an order of writing the documents. This is not a formal
document. It is more like a group note-book. It changes continually."

At best this reference should be an Informative Reference.

If you are looking for a normative reference I would recommend you
consider using the " Architectural Principles of the World Wide Web"
Working Draft [3] which is much more recent than [2].
