Dear all,

As Yolanda said in the agenda, I'd like to talk about the state of the
art for the Business Contract scenario in today's telecon.  The idea
would be to provoke suggestions of work relevant to the topic of this
scenario.  To try to make this easier, here's a summary of the
particular emphases of the scenario in advance.  If you can't make the
telecon, suggestions by email are also welcome.

Application areas: contracts, engineering processes, legal evidence

Scenario goals:
 * Checking whether past actions comply with stated obligations
 * Understanding how one product is derived from another
 * Filtering the information revealed in provenance by privacy and
ownership concerns
 * Discovering where two sources have a hidden mutual dependency
 * Resolving apparent inconsistencies in multiple accounts of the same event
 * Verifying that those who performed actions had the expertise or
authority to do so
