Hi,

I'd like to raise an issue that the architecture document currently
uses terminology such as "transport protocol", to refer to protocols
which, in the OSI or IETF network stack models, would be called
"application protocols", and moreover that these other stack models
already have a "transport protocol".

I request that Web services network stack model be described (and
layers & terms defined) and that this description be related to the
IETF and/or OSI network stack models.

Thanks.

MB
