Yes, SPML, or something very nearly identical to it, is critically needed. I know you are neck deep in it, and we might find a few others willing to jump in as deeply. 10 years ago SAML was in a similar state. With enough energy and involvement...

I was working on the wiki, when I came across some blog posts (from
this past Spring) regarding spml. I don't particularly like spml that
much (I mean, how can anyone like xml), but there's just nothing else
out there (right ?) besides custom APIs (for example, google).

Not that anyone has time, but here are the links :

"SPML is on life support...but it (or something like it) is desperately

“Is SPML on life support? Not quite, judging from all the RFP
requests that still ask for it to be supported.” SPML needs a better
implementation, better standardization, and a champion (Oracle).

Paraphrase : If not SPML, then virtual LDAP directories or SAML ?
