I thought that was one of the reasons to submit WSDM requirements to the

I don't see why not.  Just not sure I understand would it would take to 
adopt it.

For instance, having this hypothetical operation return a Service Group 
makes a lot of sense to me.  Then all the features of a Service Group 
can be leveraged, such as treating it as just another type of registry.

OTOH, requiring that each Manageability Provider register every 
manageable resource with a third party that will create a Service Group 
out of it may not be the way we want to go initially.
