Summary: Ready for publication as an Informational RFC

This is well written. Hopefully it will help avoid, or at least shorten, rehash of arguments about choosing the right level of abstraction for service models.

I don't have text to suggest, but please look at the first bullet of section 5. The explanation here was less helpful than the other bullets. Demonstrating the confusion due to the reuse of the word "service" doesn't help clarify the confusion. I wonder if there's more conversation that hasn't been captured that this paragraph is alluding to.

(nit) I also suggest raising the level of abstraction in the security consideration section where it currently lists authorization, authentication, and encryption by speaking initially to what, and calling the how out as a detail.
