"Data Center Markup Language".... oh, man, looks like yet another mechanism
for modeling a system (including operating system and hardware.)

Lets see... we have (in no particular order):
* SNMP (with MIBs for everything from IPv6 to a candy machine)
* CIM (Including WBEM which also has an XML grammer)
* HPI (which will probobly have to provide a remote protocol in the next spec)
* IPMI (with it's IPMI LAN protocol)
* What was the Microsoft XMLish modeling technology?
 ... and now ...

Am I forgeting anything? It would be nice to put all of these techologies
in perspective in the 3.0 spec.  DCL should also have the same view of the
universe (even if the recommendation on which technology to use is different.)


* Build a grammer, and solution will come
