The IGUANA gateway represents fieldbus data as datapoints which have
a value and some properties. OPC XML-DA on the other hand represents
fieldbus data with so-called ``Items'' that have ``ItemProperties''.
These two fieldbus data representations resemble each other, hence
a datapoint may be represented with an OPC Item.
