Bruce Nordman and I have been discussing whether we should re-convene a Bar BOF in Anaheim, focusing on topics beyond the usual Zigbee-vs.-IPv6 or LowPAN discussions. In particular, I think that the current stovepipe application layers (e.g., in BACS and the other control-oriented building networks) are not very helpful as a long-term architecture. We also might want to think about the interfaces that need to be exposed - we don't want our architecture to look like the 3GPP diagram... (If you've taken a look at the NIST interface diagram for the smart grid, this comparison is not purely theoretical, although obviously the protocols are completely different.)

Does this sound like something of interest?

(There is some work in the SIP Forum context, but this is not [just] about a particular protocol.)
