Subject: A general comment on the SOA RA

I have finally finished reading and realized where I had the biggest
issue with this.
The document equates SOA (for the main part) with a complex distributed
system, leaving completely aside Business/IT alignment nature of SOA.
Unless we stipulate from the very beginning, that services are
representation of well-defined business artifacts, there is no
difference between SOA and, for example, The Web. I would think that Web
is even more complex. 
So, in my mind,

"SOA can be defined as an architectural style promoting the concept of
business-aligned enterprise service as the fundamental unit of
designing, building, and composing enterprise business solutions.
Multiple patterns, defining design, implementations, and deployment of
the SOA solutions, complete this style."

Similar definitions can be also find at:
http://www.opengroup.org/projects/soa/doc.tpl?gdid=10632  and indirectly
at http://www.jot.fm/issues/issue_2008_11/column6/index.html 

Please, let me know if this makes sense?

If it does, then the document lacks a few other things that can be
easily added. But lets first agree on this slight change of a viewpoint.
