Hi Richard. We (IBM) also have a need for the same detailed mapping
information but from other services on the BMC.

Right, so where we have shared interest I think is how this service works
and exports its information to _any_ BMC service (not just bmcweb -
exporting the mapping information via external interfaces is less of a
priority over here). Can you say any more about this service?
