There are 10+ communication protocols in active development targeting iot applications. They are all very similar in technical aspects: plaintext protocols for structured data with extra features. Such protocols are only a common communication fabric, they do not define any schema for transmitted data or objects. 

Say, there are 10 different smart thermometers from different brands that can see each other on the network, send data to each other, but the temperature data they send will be in 10 different incompatible formats.

Indeed, all you have to do is define the object name and object type then wrap it in some kind of format. You can do it in ASN.1(SNMP), TLV(RPC), XML(UPnP/SOAP), JSON(AJAX) or D-BUS(AllJoyn)... there are hundreds way to do the same thing. You can even invent new object schema easily and engieers love to invent stuff, even though there are lots of well-defined, implemented, tested then outdated, forgotton standards.
