Just because other things are SOAs doesn't mean that this stuff isn't SOA
And we just need to buck up here and admit it,
even if we have to find a definition for it, its been around for a while,
there's gotta be one we
can plagiarize

I'd be all for removing any mention of SOAs, if only because I can't
think of a distributed system which isn't about services.  Email, ftp,
irc, the Web; all are SOAs.  Besides, we'd have to define it, and we
know how icky getting concensus on definitions can be. 8-/
