There are several problems if you want to have such kind of services. 
The first one is: 
How to find out "a planning service" in a heterogeneous and distributed 
environment? 

The second one (actually related to the first one) is: 
How to specify the type of "this planning service"? 

In some sense the agent (in my approach) provides a specific service 
at a higher level.
