Some general remarks.

@file and @brief are used inconsistenly.

My opinion is that we should remove @authors altogether. We have
already copyright and git log, and adding "authors" to FLOSS code,
while appealing to egos, is a bit offensive to future contributors and
complicates handling from the legal point of view (since you now have
another bit of authorship meta-information to keep into account).

@ingroup/@defgroup: we should decide how it is best to organize
groups, and if it makes sense to try to impose a necessarily arbitraty
hierarchy to the interface. My personal point of view is that we
should have a shallow categorization, mapping the headers organization

Consistency: please use a common template. Also please discuss general
design before implementing long patchsets, this will save you time in
case of controversy and will help to define a shared consistent design
with other developers.
