Usually, MAS design and implementation involves a coordination model that structures agent interactions and an infrastructure in charge of enacting it. We propose the term Coordination Support to denote the services offered by this infrastructure. Such services can be grouped in different layers. We propose an additional Assistance layer devoted to assist coordination rather than just to enable it. This layer is illustrated by means of a Peer-to-Peer sharing network (P2P) scenario, so that the benefits of our proposal can be empirically evaluated.
