I wish you luck in your efforts.  A thousand mile journey begins with a single
step and all that.

There is interest in this area.  Just look at the number of programming tools on

I see you mention XML/XMI.  You might like to talk to the Argo UML people.  They
seem quite interested in generating code from XMI (using XSLT?).

A noble aim but to generate interest I think you need concrete plans and
preferably code.

Hmm, I have concrete plans with an acheivable goal.  I even have code, although
it doesn't exactly do much.  And yet there's still not much interest.  :-)
Still I find the work interesting.  I'm looking into the MOF standard at the
moment and wondering whether C++'s lack of reflectivity is going to be a problem
for me.
