This is a good thing.
I think that an FGInterface class should get a base property node which should be the root for this aricraft. Currently this is just the root property node for "/". What we need to write then is a document which property nodes are required and which should, if present, be named with a specific name. Also having a consistent naming scheme for units might be a good idea. Where I like the approach we have now is for the position (lat/lon/alt). Since most FDM's do not compute in geodetic coordinates we can keep an interface where the FDM sets the the position in geocentric, geodetic or cartesian coordinates.
