Sound like a nice idea to me.
BTW, do we have a definite description of what a firmware is
does that fit?
(and what not). Something like "A firmware is uploaded to the
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
to avoid that someone submits madwifi's HAL or similar cruft as firmware
