I'm not sure what you mean here.. could you clarify or re-word this?

I was under the assumption that the root node would have static
configuration, or be fixed based on the implementation and would never
be configured online (via protocol).

I think most implementations will send different forms. After
creation, the config form may have some static fields like date/time
of creation, creator, etc.
