If D-CONF get the cascading feuturs right, this API can be used easy to 
add featurs like network transperancy also, ie, that need not be part of 
'core' D-CONF.

Some system that synk som local config with the network, then D-CONF tak 
care of notifying local applications (or whoever lissen).

Likevice, it's easy to add feature to synk 'legasy' config files for 
system aplikations.

Keep it simple, but good!
