[Fim4l] Statistics issue use-case

If I understand the use-case correctly it is all about statistics: how
many users of the organisation have been using which offerings. And
after having collected such stats in a trial period, the contract will
only include those offerings that have been used often enough. If the
publisher's software that does such stats, only counts on IP-range
basis, it will need to be modified. I don't think that client IP address
helps in the SAML case, but may be I missed what you wanted to say.
