What do you mean with this? My native language is german.

I like the concept of having a second instance that generate the final os specific, technical config from a more semantic user friendly system registry like UCI.

I dream to use XML for it. So that I can use on a desktop system XSLT (like regular expression for XML, but make it much easier to transform complex data.) for it and on embedded systems I want to write a XML CLI that work like "uci export" (SAX like) so you can write the XML transformation in normal shell scripts.
