Subject: Re: [soa-rm-ra] stakeholders summary

And good for Reston!

I think that the judge had it wrong. Even if the trees had no legal  
standing, people do. And the loss of trees can result in a loss to  
people in the neighborhood. I suspect that that ruling would not  
survive an appeal.

BTW: I am not a lawyer, so the above is just an opinion...

I think that you need to expand the scope of stakeholders a little:

-- service hosts
-- service mediators (brokers, etc.)
-- service discovery agencies
