(I assume you meant to say "XMLP Service-user" and not  "XMLP Service")

This confusion between service in the abstract and real service is what I think we
need to avoid. In the abstract (the old OSI service conventions),  layer N provides
"service" to layer N+1.  I think we need to avoid using "service" in that sense.
The workshop is about applications. That's what they mean by "services".

I also don't like the use of "client" in this context, because of the confusion with
the client/server model.

 I suggest "XMLP user".
