Did you read what Mr. Loeffler wrote? I cite it again:

So I talked about a service useful for both users and net. It is simply
about optimizing net paths.
All other steps were described as optional by Mr. Loeffler.

So just call the things as they are:
- net optimization, which requires architecture, version and time
- registration, which asks for additional unique information

And again to Mr. Loeffler, what is the reason for a unique identifer for
the "net optimization" step?
