Possibly a different methodology for network testing

Thanks to everyone who pointed out the various Methodologies as I looked
for crossover from what I believe may be a different/alternate method of
undertaking testing.
I have thrown together some bits on how I believe a Vulnerability test
should be undertaken, ensuring that the risks are assessed based upon
the network configuration, data movement profile and basic design of why
the network exists at all.
I still believe it is different to the OSSTMM, OWASP and NSA based
methodologies, and if I get a confirmation from these lists that my
thinking is correct, I will develop this further, with diagrams, flow
charts and templates.
I have derived this not because I believe these methodologies are
lacking, but that I believe they fulfil different needs.
Anyway , please let me know your thoughts, public or otherwise.
Yes I understand there is not much meat on it, but I am still confirming
if my thoughts are different from other methodologies.
