Neat stuff.

The design covers a wide range but it does so very thinly.  I would like 
to see a critical path identified and fleshed out in more detail,  
something along the lines of a research proposal,  plan for a commercial 
product,  or even a really cool demo.

As for protocol,  thought #1 is that it is hard to introduce an entirely 
new protocol because of the "two sided market" problem.  A "good enough" 
protocol which gives you the data you need is better than a great 
protocol which has no data.  You should look at OData as an example of a 
protocol that is well specified as opposed to GraphQL and see that the 
"one ring to bind them all" is really a system that can master all of 
the protocols.  The rest of the world can (and will) do as it will.
