Subject: Re: [wsrp-coord] Should we design in support for out-of band events?

I'm not sure we should we care about out-of-band events, unless we consider pushing them through WSRP calls. In other words, making them in-band.

I think it is important when considering this question to start with the realization that out-of-band events will occur. We need to consider how to reflect these into the interactions between the WSRP actors (Portlet, Producer, Consumer and End-User) when out-of-band communication between at least some of these actors is not in place.

To consider:
1. Portlet/Producer receives an out-of-band event that may cause a change in its state.
2. Consumer receives an out-of-band event (i.e. not a user interaction) that it wishes to distribute to various Portlets. Does distributing coordination info (events or state) always result in the aggregation of markup?
3. User-agent receives an event. Is any communication arising from in this case just a virtual user-interaction (i.e. the other WSRP actors view it as a user-interaction)?
