Hi, 

I don't know if I am walking out of scope but I am considering "Personal Metrics" within training and healthcare. For example we have personal pulse watches, blood sugar sensors and blood pressure sensors. Web application access to measurement data from that type of devices, either "built in" or communicating with the device is needed. I guess that we can't predict all types of information that we need to access so some kind of "universality" would be useful within this context. 

Regards
  Claes

Can you back this up with use cases and examples of what different  
approaches would look like? I think it would make the case clearer.
