I am merely expecting that the system integrator who will create a
Tizen product will have own specific definition of "guest", if any.
In this context the IVI vertical is a meta-product, so ther eare
actually 2 levels of system integrators, on top of common:
- the IVI architect(s)
- whoever decides to take the IVI vertical and turn it into a product

So the definition of "guest" used by the system integrators from above
should not be mixed with the one used in common.

Depending on the vertical (it might be something else than IVI) and
product, the system integrator might even decide to be more liberal
with what is allowed to the user.

The point I'm trying to make is that using generic names, such as
"guest" or "app", should be discouraged.

cheers, igor
