Dear Tobias,

Thanks for the comment and suggestion. It seems to be a good idea for us 
to also discuss some possible options besides the one that we use in the 
interoperability framework. Indeed, what we are doing in the deliverable 
is to provide some simple and practical solutions, rather than doing 
research.

Best regards,
Jeff
