    641641Sliver information is authoritatively held in aggregates: aggregates know which slivers are in which slices at that aggregate. As a convenience to tools, aggregates are encouraged to register with the SA which slices they have information about. In this way, tools can reference only certain aggregates and not all known aggregates to get a useful (if not authoritative) set of sliver details for a slice.

     643It is expected that the register_aggregate and remove_aggregate calls will be restricted to aggregates (in which case no speaks-for credential is required). That said, SAs may implement authorization policies of their choosing on these calls.
