Yes, I think such accounting is worthwhile, it is what I am doing with
Viengoos, however, I question the ability to realize it using Mach's


Hey, I've rewritten my SoC proposal again.  It eliminates the EROS model completely.  From the feedback I've received from several people, many things such as the client-side memory management is too difficult (if not impossible) in Mach. 

The proposal now focuses on a Plan9-style interface for the TCP/IP network stack.  This would provide a file-system hierarchy for browsing.  The implementation would also provide an ASCII interface similar to Plan9's where the information is easily accessible to the console and the user can specify commands piped directly to the translator with no need for external libraries.
