From the documentation point of view, XML source file should be used
to generate other "rendered" text such as *.c/*.h.  In principle,
using XML is same process such as using src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs.  As
you know, generation of usbdevs{,_data}.h is done by awk script.  And
same procedure is done in src/sys/dev/pccarddevs for generating

I think what Nik wants to say is, suggesting standard scheme to
generate these files from human readable source file.  And he suggests
XML as that source file format.

Of course, source tree are for programmers.  First thing we should
consider is not to stress programmers for that procedure.  Nik's
suggestion is more conceptual one.  We need more discussion for this
