I'm interested in (1) a DTD for networking, specifically to describe a
topology of networks, routers, ports, etc.  If one doesn't already exist,
contact me and we'll form a splinter group to create one (my guess would be
to start with SNMP data and go from there).

I am also interested in (2) a DTD for building systems...fans, pumps,
valves, boilers, chillers, cooling towers, meters (electric, gas, water,
sewer).  My mission is to build a suite of applications that can be used
for diagnostics (if I shut of pump #3, who will no longer get water?
Building #6 lost power, which circuit is that?), analysis, modeling, etc.
With "smart buildings" there is an increasing interconnection between
components (air-conditioning, fire control, security).

Before trying to work on (2) it would be informative to work on (1).  I
think XML would be an excellent mechanism to transfer this structured data
between tools.
