I think this group will certainly grow with large number of companies. Certainly there is a huge demand for the produucts that are connected in the network. This gives flexibility to control the different hardware from anywhere.

I understand the IEEE 1905.1 group at present is considering IEEE P1901, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.3 and MoCA 1.1 to converge them for defining the abstraction layer. I think they might consider including others such as Zigbee, bluetooth etc. in due course if more participants from this areas joins the group...what do you think?

Wireless MBus is another potential protocol for metering in mainland Europe. It would be worthwhile to assimilate these narrow band networks in the new standard.

convergence of wi-fi and powerline is something interesting.homenetworking is a area that still is underexplored.But looking at the the uniqueness of different homes and different parameters its really challenging.

Ideally this interface would provide the paths necessary for cross-layer optimization between the logical (TCP/IP) and physical layers. This would enable QoS and route discovery across these networks in an agnostic fashion. The hard part of that is coming up with an interface that is technically capable and politically correct (i.e. doesn't unduly favor one network type over another). Then they have to decide whether to do things like resource discovery at higher layers or to try to add that themselves. This is going to take them a while... Larry M.

Does Zigbee fit under that tent - for home energy management products?
