Sun had Jini, which was then a bit to early and now nearly forgotten.

UPNP has some aspects of remote control in a semantically abstract way. 
But UPNP is way too complex to be cool. :(
Looks to me completely over designed and arbitrary.

I hoped to see someting to come out of the bluetooth corner. But have 
not seen anything interesting there yet.
And all that house automation and telemetry crap (like CANOpen) i have 
seen looks to mee like it would be not abstract enough to be fun at all.

Never heard of that XPL thing, but sounds really nice. :)
