Component Software book ideas

I see that there are some ideas in my Fault Expectant Programming framework that are similar to ideas in "Component Software" by Clemens Szyperski.

On page 307, he talks about "atomic actions" that are invoked indirectly, and even queued up for execution.  This rhymes with my atomic transactions that are managed by a coordinator.

On page 46, there is a section titled "Specifying Time and Space Requirements" which rhymes with my notion of contracts having enough performance details that it enables bidding on requests by would-be workers.
