I concur.  A great software company once said "The network is the 
computer" ;-)

Like a single CPU system, a distributed computing system can benefit 
from a registry.  I personally like the MS Windows Registry model 
(please - no flames from Linux zealots).  The registry contains keys 
that identify system resources to be called when needed.  A distributed 
computing model can benefit from a registry in the same way.

Perhaps the paper could compare the usefulness of the Windows Registry 
system and point out that the ebXML Registry could provide a similar 
service for distributed computing?

BTW - I personally don't believe that distributed computing will ever 
become mainstream since the network lags incurred and multiplicity of 
possible points of failure seem to mitigate any perceived advantage. 
 IMHO - the whole concept seems to be a "we're doing this just because 
we can" technologist driven exercise.  Single calls to BSI's are more
