Don't jump to the conclusion that the '3-planes' system domain diagram is a literal layered system architecture. Certainly there are relevant insights that you can take from this overview diagram.
For example, the System & Vision plane is largely a role/actor-aware User Interface framework which understands the underlying meta-model constructs of the 'Mirror Worlds'-like executable model. Given a desktop owner or model-portal log-on, it is the responsibility of this UI framework to dynamically render use-configurable and user-specific views on the state of the executing model.
Depending on implementation-specific design decisions, this UI framework may be client-side or server-side. In either case, it is most likely that the actual encoding and transmission of model-state data will be XML-based.
This isn't about websites and web applications...
The hypergraphical Actor/Person and Role/Organization planes, however, will almost certainly be implemented using server-based technologies. Instead of today's website or web application destinations, 'elastically networking entrepreneurial free agent' users will dynamically and asynchronously attach to, and participate in, persistently-executing model-spaces.
Note that the model-space does not need to be omnipotent; that is, everyone does not need to 'play' within one monolithic, proprietary model-space. Rather, the open interface standard of an Open Source role/actor executable business model technology platform supports, in fact encourages, multiple concurrent model-serving hosts. An open interface will allow model elements to be mobile among these independently owned and operated model-space hosts.
Think of a role/actor executable business model architecture as a software environment existing in three planes...
