Future of VLS

I think we need to think of
capabilities to go into a
VLS API, basically a VLS daemon
that waits for events and handles
them, and then allow various
access methods to interface with
If I have a typical video client,
I want one sort of interface.
If I have a remote archive server,
I want another. A settop box will
want another, etc.
What are the reasonable parameters
that need to be controlled in VLS,
and what kind of access control
is least disruptive to its streaming?
