Doesn't the OMG look at proposals for the machine-independent
flattening of objects onto file streams as part of its Externalization

If the methods they evaluate are no good for data interchange of arbitrary
structures, then please go ahead and propose a better one to the OMG! If it
is OK, these proposals would be worth considering as a language-independent
machine-independent expressive and extensible OO basis for the geometry and
anchors you want to send over streams.
