V. Good examples, but I don't think the LDS/VRS is
designed to support them:

But if we're using a distributed middleware to support
the VRS, then that middleware does all this for you - it's
central to it's operation - certainly with Goldwater.

Again the middleware should do this, as it's the
middleware that controls the routing of messages between
LDS's, and its a function of the application not a
product of it.

Besides, the agents aren't supposed to be able to
access the physical machine.
