I guess you'll have to bring me up to speed here.  Right now we have:
Phase3 - device discovery
Phase4 - resource allocation
Phase5 - resource setting
Phase6 - device enable


Are you saying to add:
Phase4a - resource reading
Phase4b - resource summing
Phase4c - resource value assigning

I'm not sure that there's enough work in each of those to justify a separate
phase.  Especially because I'd like to make the resource summing generic
enough that it never needs to get overwritten.  Did I get your intent right?

I'm not up to speed on this discussion at all.
