Coming at this from a Governance perspective, who are the stakeholders,
who can affect the outcomes.

*IT Vendor (creating  a market)
*Consumer (though I prefer Passenger , which I sometimes happen to be 
and therefore welcomes discussion of the issues from as many sides as 
possible, in order to guess at the risks to me personally)
*Government, who lets hope include Safety of people and infrastructue
amongst their other interests in this
*Airport Operator (want to meet government security requirements and
maximise passenger/air traffic at optimum efficiency - though in Sydney
they seem to want to run shops as well)
*Airlines (want to limit risks to their staff, passengers and capital
and would probably like to refuse to carry football teams)
