Agent agreement on events, commitments, claims
This has come up in several groups who want to validate or check events logged by members. We expect it will also come up with transfers. Basically, wherever there is a provider and a receiver, they should agree that the record is correct. This becomes more critical in distributed systems, and feedback from people with that experience would be helpful. @pospi @bhaugen @mayel and anyone!
Bob's initial thought is to create some kind of state or status for those records, which could include things like "data was received" (for distributed systems), "provider asserted", "receiver agreed" or whatever names we like or are standard in other places. Might be the same as "signed", "counter-signed".
Also I don't know if this belongs in the vocabulary, or should be considered a different level - but I think it would be helpful in the vocab. It will probably be exposed in some user interfaces, where the receiver agreement cannot be fully automated.
