Hi folks,

   is there any initiative regarding the standardization
   of embedded devices?
  
   Wouldn't it be pretty fancy to have an XML document
   like this?


     <serial_port>
       <name>sci2</name>
       <tx_enable>yes</tx_enable>
       <rx_enable>no</rx_enable>
       <tx_interrupt_enable>yes</tx_interrupt_enable>
       <rx_interrupt_enable>no</rx_interrupt_enable>
       <baud>9600</baud>
     </serial_port>


   if all the resources of the device were described by
   a standard XML document it would be really easy to
   configure and interact with the device.
   A client application running on a PC could retrieve
   the document, build an HTML representation of the device
   and let the user interact with the device.
