What would a "better" system mean
I would not get too hung up on what has been deployed because pretty much
every combination of SOAP/XML/HTTP/SSH/Telnet/Corba has been deployed in
some non trivial way.
I think the start is focusing on what the hard problems are. Then figure out
how to make them so easy that people building equipment find it easier to
build in the standard thing, than building in some half baked home grown
CLI. This may be impossible but it seems to be the key item to making this
useful in the long term.
I have yet to been to a meeting planning the development schedule for a new
product where someone said "We could shave 1 month off the schedule if, in
the first version of the product, we only supported SNMP instead of CLI. We
can add in CLI on version 2." Ok, so I have been sniffing something, but if
there was something that reduced development effort and still solved the
real problems - it would be fairly popular.
