That idea, as you may know, has come up quite a few times. It's been seen 
that trying to create a big one-size-fits-all SDK doesn't work (which is not 
what you're suggesting, I just wanted to get that idea out of the way).

Several small, domain-specific SDKs would imho be a good idea indeed. I know 
that there was talk about doing this amongst the XML community. Imho a good 
way to get there would be for domain-specific groups (SIGs in fact) to come 
up with their own SDKs. I don't think they need to be coordinated between 
themselves as the good ideas will spread quickly.
