The way I've been looking at it, the item nodes are implementation specific, ie,
not everything will have node="config". So the original request is controller by
the Registrar, but the others are controller and SHOULD be maintained as unique
via the responding application.

The first node is a 'meta-node' which gives us a list of all other nodes which
can be manipulated by x-commands.

Perhaps this should be spelled out more clearly in the JEP?
