Dear Rich,

I published a framework for this under the title

   "Getlets: extending the interwiki concept beyond any limits"

during the First International Wikimedia Conference 2005 04.-08.08.2005 
in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

Please find this presentation in the Proceedings which location has 
recently moved to [1]
