   What you're describing sounds an lot like the Registry and Repository
services that OASIS (http://www.oasis-open.org) claims to be setting up on
XML.org (http://www.xml.org). Biztalk (http://www.biztalk.org) seems to have
similar intentions, but I assume that's the 'single company marketing
manouver' to which you've referred.
