I'd like to give you a lengthy answer, but I'm leaving tomorrow morning for the WNS3 workshop, so I'll need to be short.

Me and Vedran Miletic already did some thinking about the way to do it, and we had some ideas. On the other hand, I don't want to limit your creativity (it's part of GSOC to be propose your approach, we're here to guide you, not to tell you "do this, do that"). 

Anyway, the target is, as said in the proposal, to increase the flexibility of the Energy Model and the way the various ns-3 models can interact with it in order to achieve the desired functionality. As a hint, I can tell that what me and Vedran was thinking to **seems** to be both elegant, simple and effective. On the other hand, we don't know if it could work as intended. Hence, don't take my words as the Fermat's Last Theorem (i.e., stated and not explained). We could be wrong (or not) and we'll discuss about our ideas in due time.

Energy being an important factor esp. for nodes placed in hostile environment where battery replenishing is not trivial makes energy model to implement suggested changes so that this can be implemented for real-time scenarios.

I am currently reading about the existing energy model being implemented in ns-3 and thinking for the best possible improvements we can make in order to accomplish our desired functionality.

The nice thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.
And if you really don't like all the standards you just have to wait another year until the one arises you are looking for.
