This is also the intent for netcf's XML (warning: neither the XML format
nor the API can be considered stable yet, but I hope that we get to that

As for backend differences, we definitely need to address them on a
case-by-case basis, weighing the headache of dealing with different
backends with different feature sets against the importance of that
feature.
