I prefer to describe the things listed on slide 23 as side channels of
communication because they are outside the OO model of sending messages
to objects.  Slide 26 reinforces this point.

Also, I don't buy your argument on slide 24 that ambient authorities
allows you to manufacture authority.  I don't think it's necessary,
either, if you use the description in terms of side channels.
