Another question from Arie:

Would there be a need to rate these connectors or give them a "score" akin
to rating agencies?

   - on speed / response time?
      - proactivity and accountability?
      - crypto escrow insurance?

I think that the market will begin to establish this.

i.e. There is an opportunity for someone to provide scoring/guidance to
users of connectors. The success of these "attestors" will likely be
influenced by the metrics they expose, their accuracy, cost to get the data
etc.

These same "attestors" will likely also provide some ways of establishing
connector's identity and regulatory compliance.

In a forward thinking jurisdiction one could imagine the rating, licensing,
certification etc of connectors being provided as a public service by
someone like a central bank...?
