hmmm ... i consider this a bit extreme. i know that i have personally
floated ideas for every single item you detailed below. i do plan on
fleshing these out a bit more ... but to say that this hasn't been
discussed is not the same picture i have. i'm ready to drill down
now that i believe the dust has settled a bit on some core dependencies,
and i'll repeat:

	http/s - cgi compliant service - xml formatted static data

as a bare minimum.

with the above statment firmly in mind, clients can interact with
the config service in an "active" manner (translation: the client
will get/post requests to the config service as it deems appropriate)
or "passive" (translation: the client can publish a hook with which
the config service can actively communicate with.

well, i believe the discussion doc to date discusses more then
just dtd semantics although i will admit that that section is
the most complete give i had an implemenation with which to
reverse engineer.
