    initial v1  
    11Something I've talked over with ln5 (Linus Nordberg) is rather than having the client (knowingly) register at multiple facilitators, is to multiplex and distribute such registrations on the facilitator side; for example, further decouple facilitator-email-poller, and have it send some registrations to one facilitator and some registrations to another.

    3 The main motivation, as I understand it, is privacy of flash proxy operators. For example, a privacy-oriented web site wants to install the proxy badge, but doesn't want their visitors making requests to a third-party server. They can run their own facilitator, and configure their badge to make requests to it only. But then the question is of course, how does this new facilitator learn about any clients, when all existing clients are already configured to register with someone else.
