Then be patient.  This isn't a trivial document and 
these are not trivial terms.  

Why is a term from the field of visualization of 
topical clustering introduced into a document describing 
the web architecture?   Provide the definition for 
the abstraction so the scope is clear.

Sandro, they are two topics: one is the space, the other is visualizing
that space.  That page says it is talking about maps of information
spaces.  That is just like the AAA handing out maps of physical roads,
though a bit harder to visualize because the geography isn't forced
into a mostly-flat-spherical plane. The relations within and between
information create a space.  This *is* a common term in the area of
Web architecture and it should be used when appropriate.

Please, can we just be a tad less oversensitive about ontologies
on this list?  Half the time I can't carry on even the most trivial
conversations with other TAG members without being interrupted.
