Quality of Service testing and notification

AGO allows for the reference of many map services, but they sometimes timeout or are unavailable. This yields an unusable solution when maps won't load.

Recommendation: Integrate testing of all registered mapservices, RSS, KML, and WMS to prove daily availability and test latency using the Service Status Checker from the USGS/FGDC. Uptime and availability metrics can be expressed back in the AGO and Explorer interfaces to notify the user that a service is either unavailable or unreliable, and notifications can be sent to the publishers to help keep the services alive.
