I'm not sure what UPnP actually /does/.  It doesn't look like anything that
couldn't be acheived using the existing DNS/DHCP and HTTP protocols.  Sure,
they all require "servers", but that coud be integrated into the "home
gateway" that every STB manufacturer talks about.

Anyway, I'm not sure what this has to do with the list anymore...
