My motivation is to include such an API as part of a Platform for the
motivation given below (from my initial posting):

"In case the Discovery related API and service provider selection would
have been a 'standardized' public API and mechanism, people can build on
top of that utilities. The configuration of Platform provided service
providers can then be left to the Platform implementors such as Seven
while they can still add their own service providers for cases not
supported by the Platform."

E.g. LookupDiscovery and LookupLocator implementations can be built on
top of such an API in a portable way, no need to drag all the com.sun or
future org.apache.river implementation code as is currently the case.
