    207207AMs may have their own operational states/state-machine internally. AMs are however required to advertise such states and actions that experimenters may see or use, by using an advertisement RSpec extension (if an AM does not advertise operational states, then tools can not know whether any actions are available). Operational states which the experimenter never sees, need not be advertised. Operational states and actions are generally by resource type. The standard RSpec extension attaches such definitions to the `sliver_type` element of RSpecs.

    211211Tools must use the operational states and actions advertisement to determine what operational actions to offer to experimenters, and what actions to perform for the experimenter. Tools may choose to offer actions which the tool itself does not understand, relying on the experimenter to understand the meaning of the new action.
