The plan was to setup a small project to see whether this will really
work and only if the answer is yes to go for a real implementation.

I once had a telco with the German BSI and the Microsoft Outlook
managers and the outcome was the answer will likely be yes.  However,
having seen all the problems with Outlook development, I was not willing
to go for a full development contract with the risk that due to
unforeseen problems I would not have been able to deliver.  Thus the
idea with a first step research project - which is up in the air for 2
or 3 years now.
