Did you know that iSNS has a (maybe slightly flawed) fc model built in to it ? We've discussed some similar ideas over here more than once, and there is a lot of sense to what you say. Some small and subtle changes in a few places would be goodness. With servers and indeed storage being increasingly multiprotocol there is even more reason why this makes sense no matter the exact mechanisms you would use. IMHO the biggest issue here is that the politics within one standard body is tricky enough, but the politics across two or three standards bodies makes it hard to get some of this stuff done which I think is a shame.

Thanks Simon, actually, I've decided to try and avoid the politics with the standards bodies for now and try something different this time. Stay tuned..
