    My main complaint is that that's not user friendly *AT ALL*.

    You need to make this useful to mere mortals: go through the
    SDM, categorize interesting looking events, look at how it can
    be expressed via tooling, add a generic event where appropriate,
    provide examples, actually *USE* it to improve the kernel or an
    app and see the workflow as it happens and improve the tooling,
