Although I haven't had the chance to be more productive / involved in the
project due to other areas of interest, I'm in favour of finding a
compromise solution that would allow both Reza and Werner to continue
working on this project.

IIRC the main problem stems from supporting the W3C DDR Simple API (through
the legacy OpenDDR client) or implementing a new API, more suitable for the
current times. At the same time DeviceMap never claimed to support the DDR
Simple API - instead the goal was to create a data repository and
eventually an API to consume said data. Therefore I *really* don't
understand why we constantly need to argue about this.
