Why a service? Because if its generic there is no need for it to be
part of LP core; being separate will allow reuse in e.g. SSO, Software
Centre Agent, Ratings and Reviews, .... Being a separate service also
allows for restricted restricted access to its DB, if we choose - to
allow a higher standard of security around the audit trail[s].
