How about IBM's Translator Generator?

To me, it sounds like you could do with some tools for mapping different
data structures that represent similar underlying data structures to a
common model.  The problem isn't that XML is too flexible; rather, it's
that no one has yet built something handy for making "everyone else's
representation" into "my representation". It doesn't seem like a light
project, but it doesn't seem impossible, either.

It'd get you out of:
a) having to define all your models in advance
b) forcing everyone to use identical representations

I wish I had more time, I really do.  Anybody else done something like this?
