‘Federated’ still sounds like Liberty Alliance to me, and Doc Searls’ quip “it means big companies get together and have sex with our data”. This may be just me though.

‘Peer’ would be an alternative. Obviously, that has its own set of connotations :-)

After some brainstorming with different people we want to rename this feature to "Federated Cloud". This describes way better what the real idea behind this feature is.
