Clearly there are usage scenarios based on technologies other than UPnP for a scheme that allows widgets to declare an intention to access network resources on the local network - simple web services discovered via mDNS/DNS-SD for example.

I haven't seen a lot of discussion of this issue recently, apart from Marcin's proposals.  If that reflects a general lack of enthusiasm, it would be useful to know if people's reservations are technical in nature, or if the scenarios in question are simply not thought to be common enough?
