I hope my response to Anne demonstrated some of them.

BTW, I'd also add that I liken this approach to that of procfs[1], aka
"/proc" on Linux.  As Linux/Unix is very much file based, it seemed a
natural choice to expose OS and hardware information via files.  To
me, it seems just as natural a choice to expose Web-client-side
information via documents.
