I think, xml is the format of choice.

I made the same suggestion some time ago in the avr-freaks forum.

At that time, I thought it would be a good idea, to evaluate the
xml-database at runtime,
and I was told that this would be too slow.

But a code generator generating C code from an xml file should be the
best solution.

I have wrote some code-generators (xml to C) at work, using Borland Delphi.

For editing xml-files there are many good solutions, e.g. emacs or
oxygen or ...

There is something like xml-forms, too.

One problem is, that we cannot redistribute the xml device definition
file from atmel
without their permission (Jörn asked them for a permission and they said

Therefore it might be a good idea, to create an own format, that can be
filled from
the atmel xml file (well, to 95%) with a little converter.

If people here agree, that this is a good solution, I could make a
suggestion for an
xml format (dtd).
