CHS - Configuration Hierarchy Standard

I suggest to form a project which I call CHS (Configuration Hierarchy
Standard) having goals similar to FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, see
http://www.pathname.com/fhs/) but for configuration.
We should specify semantic and syntax of a value named by a key, e.g.
is the namespace for system configuration...
with purpose, requirements and rationale in an informal way.
Configuration systems like elektra, augeas, uniconf but also projects which
are in a tree of the hierarchy like kde, gnome and other applications, may
contribute and implement this specifications.
Any ideas or suggestions?
This mailinglist seems to be a good place for a first start.
