I once thought of developing a computer where everything from the core functions to the peripherals
was a network node. In effect replacing the bus. I found references to a Cambridge U (UK) computer
system that purported to do just that but couldn't find any more info on it.
Your idea sounds like an extension of Oberon, from what I can remember of reading Wirth's book on the
Oberon OS in the nineties.
You should give it a go.
