What is a reference architecture?

The term “architecture” seems to be in ever increasing use in its technological context. As an extrapolation from the construction term that Frank Lloyd Wright would have been familiar with, its definition as the “overall design of a computing system and the logical and physical interrelationships between its components” is intuitively obvious. The fact that the architecture specifies the hardware, software, access methods and protocols used throughout the system comes as a surprise to no-one.
