This is obviously relevant to our efforts.

I would, however, draw your attention to the views of Roy Fielding on
this document at
and the subsequent discussion.  Fielding proposes some definitions
of "software architecture" that might be useful to us:

    A software architecture is an abstraction of the run-time
    elements of a software system during some phase of its operation.
    A system may be composed of many levels of abstraction and many
    phases of operation, each with its own software architecture.

Subject: First public WD of "Architectural Principles of the World Wide

Dear Chairs,

I'm pleased to announce the publication of the first public
Working Draft of "Architectural Principles of the
World Wide Web" [1].

 From the abstract:

  "The World Wide Web is a networked information system. Web
  Architecture is the set of principles that all agents in
  the system follow to create the large-scale effect of a shared
  information space. Identification, data formats, and protocols
  are the main technical components of Web Architecture, but the
  large-scale effect depends on social behavior as well.

  "This document strives to establish a reference set of
  principles for Web architecture."

You are invited to comment on this document on the TAG's
public mailing list (www-tag@w3.org).

Thank you,

  _ Ian
