Hmm. Well, mrg seems to mostly share your world-view, but seemed to
understand what I was saying here. Perhaps he can explain it to you
better than i can. 8-)
as i read it, cgd is saying we want to define the interfaces that
props will use _completely_ separate from the actual usage of these
proprties. eg, we will not define any bus/device/etc "protocol"
until after the framework has been completed. we need to get this
interface *right* and then start using it.
