Subject: [UArch] Introductory Statement and Scope statement [Action Item]

This is an attempt to describe something about the the MUWS Architecture 
and the Scope of the Architecture document.

As has been discussed in the calls already, it won't be really clear 
what overlap there would be with the Introduction/Context section, or 
the text describing the MUWS Concept diagram.  And at the moment, this 
would be the first subsection of the Concept/Conceptual Model section.

2.1.  MUWS Architecture.  The MUWS Architecture being addressed in this 
document consists of the pieces needed for management using Web Services 
of generic Information Technology resources.  This requires a Web 
Services interface for manageability of the resource, whether or not the 
resource is a Web Service itself.  The previous section placed this work 
in the larger context of Web Services Architecture and following 
sections will provide more detail about the components of the MUWS 

2.2.  MUWS Architecture Scope.  The MUWS Architecture being defined 
consists of the Web Services endpoint(s), service(s), and interface(s) 
that expose the manageability capabilities for the manageable resource.  
The MUWS Concept UML diagram and accompanying text in section 2.3 below 
will provide more detail on the relationships involved.
The following items are explicitly out of scope for the MUWS Architecture:
       o) The Manager (see Section 1 for definition)
       o) The Manageable Resource.  No constraints or requirements will 
be placed on the actual resource itself.
       o) Required services.  Examples include, but are not limited to, 
a Registry, a Policy Repository, or a Security service.  They will be 
mentioned in the document where appropriate, and MUWS has requirements 
on these services, but they will not be defined here.

Now let the arguments begin, so we can improve this section.
