Hmmm, Im not sure if this will be available in 1.5 in WS... can you wait for
1.5.1 a month or two later? Maybe use the API in the meantime?

Would the only services you need be:

1. Assign an attribute value to an object (e.g. group)

2. Query groups which have certain attribute values

Well, what I mean is the attribute framework will have a given type for an
attribute. The ideal type is a "marker" type, where all values are
registered in the grouper registry. So if a user wanted to free form write
one in, then your UI would have to register that value as acceptable with the
grouper registry before assigning. Otherwise, if you wanted to mix and match
(preset values, and freeform), then maybe you could use two different
attributes on groups, one free form, and one list of values.
