Some of them support methods for asking narrower/broader questions,
some of them don't.

Is the reason different sources use different ways to express information the 
fact that there is no suitable protocol? Or is it a mere consequence of the 
fact that sources have different things they are willing and able to share?

I think the idea is nice. Whether such a format is really needed I'm not sure. 
I can see how having more information available makes for better decisions, but 
I am worried the accuracy gained isn't worth the performance lost.

Perhaps you can come up with examples of where such a protocol would be useful?
