Subject: Re: [soa-rm] Definition of "Service Consumer"

That's a bit narrow, but then, I don't know how specific or inclusive 
we need to be, nor whether we want to consider specifying that the 
role of "service consumer" applies only during the invocation, nor 
whether we might want to consider the role "consumer service" as an 
intermediary between the service provider and the service consumer 
where numerous providers could be aggregated into a broker for a 
particular domain, such as human resources or supply chain management.
