Well, this is what I'd always thought of when we'd talk about a 
client/server model.  The idea I had was of a profile stored elsewhere, 
be it on the local network, or perhaps even a public profile server on 
the internet.  There would be no need for the machine being built to 
have the full profile at all...it would get it's instructions from the 
profile server, and carry out those instructions locally.

The main issue I can see with this is system configuration...but that 
could be worked around by writing some additional information into the 
DTD to allow user interaction - the profile instructs the program to ask 
the user what IP address they want, and so on.
