Views are publicly defined, Server-created subsets of the AddressSpace. The entire AddressSpace is the default View, and therefore, the View Services are capable of operating on the entire AddressSpace. Future versions of this specification may also define Services to create Client defined Views.

The View Service Set allows Clients to discover Nodes in a View by browsing. Browsing allows Clients to navigate up and down the hierarchy, or to follow References between Nodes contained in the View. In this manner, browsing also allows Clients to discover the structure of the View.
