I don't think Dan and John are as far apart as Ewan's first proposal and Dan's/John's proposals. I think Dan and John are saying the same thing, but probably in two different languages / from two different perspectives.

If I'm wrong, someone please clarify the differences between Dan's and John's proposals from both a CIM and Xen API standpoint.
