We had talked briefly about this in the v1 timeframe. Between the security
issues and the need for the Consumer to remember the properties in many cases
anyway, we decided it was reasonable to always place the burden of remembering
them on the Consumer and therefore did not define means for them to retrieved
from the Producer.

spec to retrieve registration
We have a couple of use-cases which require the current value of a
consumer's registration properties to be fetched by the consumer. This
is not currently possible in the WSRP 2.0 spec.
1. During modifyRegistration present the user with a dialog box with
registration properties in it.
1. We would like to display the current property values, so the
user can only change what's needed.
2. We would like to be able to move a registration from one producer
to another (e.g. staging to production)
We have thought of 2 ways to achieve this:
* Add registrationProperties to the ServiceDescription type
o Possibly add a boolean to getServiceDescription to determine
when it is wanted
* Add a new method to the Registration Interface to mirror the
methods in the Portlet Management Interface
o PropertyList getRegistrationProperties(registrationContext,
o Note: getRegistrationPropertyDescription(...) would not be
needed as this information is available in the service
