Sound like a nice idea to me.
BTW, do we have a definite description of what a firmware is (and what
not). Something like "A firmware is uploaded to the flash of a hardware
device and executed there *and not* by the operating system on the host cpu"
Might be a good idea to write that or something similar down somewhere,
to avoid that someone submits madwifi's HAL or similar cruft as firmware
