Also, as we all seems to be looking at different aspects of the same
problem, it would make sense to follow (and hopefully contribute) to the
topology discussion that is taking place on this thread:
I'd definitely expect the MBIGEN subsystem to express the DeviceID it
presents to the ITS using a common format - the ITS code itself should
be able to parse it in isolation and still do the right thing.
Jazz is not dead. It just smells funny...
