Cross-production Interoperability Messages, Service and Operation

With the "ripping the monolith apart" movement towards micro-services, it is quite a tedious process to break up existing productions with 100+ business hosts.

The suggestion is that moving BP and operations into other productions should be made simpler, by create a Service and Operation that can handle a standardised interoperability request and response, that is serialised and desirialised by the adapters.

This way it will be easy to move busy operations and BPLs to a production on another server, without necessarily having to move the service as well, especially in complex systems, where a BPL interacts with many different operations and even other BPs.

It is just an effort to convert to JSON and to the reverse on the other side for this - extra operation to build and an extra service to build.
