I don't have a strong opinion about this, but I have always understood "provisioning" to relate to the infrastructure for image storage, capture and loading while "brokering" relates to connecting the virtualization or blade back-end to a user's request, which would include such things as authentication, authorization, reservations, scheduling, etc. I think the two are pretty equal in importance.
