sure, so here's my understanding so far:
An "OPES system" describes the collection of all OPES entities (i.e.
OPES processors and callout servers) that are operated by a single
provider (or, alternatively: ...within a single trust domain).
If this describes what an "OPES system" was meant to be, I somehow don't
like the term too much. Maybe the term "OPES domain" would be appropriate?
I do not see why who is providing what would structurally interfere with
the definition of a system.
An OPES system is a system organized by someone to offer one or a set of
edge services. If in so doing it uses thousand resources by a single or by
thousand providers has no structural impact and should have no effect on
the result. However who the someone is (user, called service, third party,
community) may have an influence on the global nature of the system.
An OPES domain maybe of interest to define the parts of an OPES system by a
given operator, but we have to make clear that such an OPES domain may not
be a sub-OPES system.
