Well, now I looked at the three diagrams here: 

https://github.com/openspending/osep/blob/gh-pages/01-approach-and-architecture-of-openspending.md <https://github.com/openspending/osep/blob/gh-pages/01-approach-and-architecture-of-openspending.md>

Which are sequential (I took part in discussion for the 2nd one, as far as it relates to stuff I am working on for OKFN). I think all in all, the 3rd one (which I believe Tryggvi did), has the clearest use of colour, and simplifies the 2nd, is the most informative:
