This is a good start on actual concrete, implemented application patterns. What might be helpful, given the large and cross-cutting amount of information in the Application Architecture Guide book, is calling out the Application Types (Archetypes) and Architecture Styles that are used to compose each Application Pattern. This may already be implied (Two-Tier equates to N-Tier Arch Style and Rich Client equates to Rich Client Application App Type) but a hard reference someplace in the pattern might make it more obvious. I like to think of the App Arch guide as the pieces that are referenced/composed to define the Application Patterns, and the Application Patterns are the real world, concrete patterns that a large audience can identify with and implement.
