During the Summit 2019 @vincent-d mentioned the possibility of remotely 
executing shell commands and @HendrikVE had a working shell-over-bluettoth.

I just wanted to point out to you some work in that direction that may 
(or may not) be useful. With the PRs I mention below it should be easier 
to implement something like a CBOR/JSON based interface based on COAP or 
any other protocol.

The first one is PR #10624 by @MrKevinWeiss which tries to define a 
common output format for shell commands. In particular, it provides a 
consistent way of reporting the return code of commands. The tricky part 
here is that it is still text based.

The other is PR #9538 by me where I define some data structures to 
express the arguments to a command and also provide a parser. The parser 
is not important here, but the structures could allow arguments to be 
parsed from a document (e.g. JSON/CBOR/etc) and introspection by making 
the commands self-describing.

Hope you can find that useful.
