Call it cim-life, or wbem-life, or novell-life, or life-wbem, or something,
then.  (The description was of the buzzword variety--if you don't already
know what CIM or WBEM mean, the description doesn't tell you anything--so
I don't know which is most appropriate.)

I'd hope it wouldn't be called "life", though.
