A VM is going to be a more
generally-useful part if it has access to contextual information

It needs to be admin configurable of course, because there are also times when you specifically want to disable or spoof all such context info.

The day the fake bios/acpi/efi info becomes standard is the day microsoft and apple start looking for it to disable your windows/osx install, so while one guy needs to supply this info, another guy specifically needs to avoid supplying this same info.
