It's basically a bunch of microformats to allow different groups to solve 
generic problems without re-inventing the weel.  For example:

-Sending node information to a maping system (we already have two competing 
XML formats (that we know of). 
-Whitelisting neighbouring mesh nodes for captive portals (very common need 
for groups outside ISF)
-Transmiting IP adressing plans

It is NOT meant to be a monster standard for wireless infrastructure that does 
everything, just a bunch of problem by problem XML data structures.  This 
way, concensus is build with only the groups that have to solve that specific 
problem and no one else.

My immediate job is to add a summary of the most immediate problems to be 
solved by the different groups.
