In print publishing, it often occurs that the publisher or
distributor does not own the copyright. These are the parties
that need to be able to name their products, whether as agents
for copyright holders or not. Service providers are yet
another category of business entity, though they may overlap
the categories of publisher and distributor.

Otherwise, a good wish list, Dan.
