It seems to me that the second paragraph of the description is 
misleading and unfortunate.  The proposed interface is not inherently 
any faster (or slower) than any other existing interface.  It may in 
fact use existing protocols and mechanisms.  At the same time, the 
stated goal is to expose information and models that are generalizations 
or synthesized combinations of what the devices currently expose.  This 
is unlikely to be meaningfully manipulated using the same paradigms that 
operators currently use.

Would it still hang together if he paragraph were simply removed?

Yours,
Joel
