Selecting a Partner when multiple are registered seems generally useful.  
User Agents should thus provide a UI to do so instead of forcing every  
Site to redundantly provide a UI ultimately leading to bandwidth waste and  
interface incompatibilities. Then users would not need to give up  
information, such as the location of their sensors, to the Site.
