In Flander/Belgium, there was the geGIS (generic GIS) back in 2006, 
which lead to the creation of the Geomajas project.
The idea was to have a generic platform for the creation what was called 
"editable SDI nodes". Although it fell a bit short of reaching that 
goal, it dfinitely was a step in the right direction. This first geGIS 
installment is now a little outdated, but the government in Flanders is 
now looking into renewing the project (using the latest Geomajas again).

Contact point would be info at dfc.be (the company currently maintaining geGIS)
