But one thing caught my eye, that I just have to comment on:
If we do it right, there won't *be* a config file entry for USB. I

Before you ramble on about BIOS compatibility modes, I have two more
words for you:
Sure, new config might have some problems wrt. dynamic device configuration,
but the problems are fairly well understood, and with a little time and
effort, they could be fixed.
Anyhow, I was amused, so I had to comment...
